New York DePuy Hip Replacement Attorneys

DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuits

The DePuy ASR XL Hip Replacement System was introduced to the United States in 2005. DePuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, advertised their new system as a "high performance hip replacement". Advertisements showed people running on the beach and performing other high impact activities. The system is made up of metal on metal components which, as they deteriorate, generate significant amounts of debris that can cause severe inflammation and damage muscles and other soft tissue. These injuries require a follow up operation to replace the device.

DePuy Hip Replacement Recall

The ASR XL hip replacement was designed with a shallower cup than other hip implants which many orthopedic specialists believe is what is responsible for its higher failure rate. Since 2008 the FDA has received around 300 complaints where patients had to have the device replaced soon after it was implanted. In 2009, DePuy voluntarily withdrew the system from the Australian market. In March 2010 DePuy stopped selling the ASR XL system in the United States but insisted that this was not a recall of the product. Finally in August 2010 DePuy announced a voluntary recall of their system in the United States.
