DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson Company issued a recall for their ASR hip replacement and implant system. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started receiving complaints about 2 years after the release of the metal-on-metal hip replacement device which prompted an investigation. After a full investigation, Johnson & Johnson recalled two different products; the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. The products first became available to consumers around 2003. In July of 2010 the FDA notified the general public of Johnson & Johnson intent to recall the ASR Hip Replacement and in the same year, J&J issues a worldwide recall for both the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System.
Depuy issued a statement that all individuals whom underwent hip surgery over the last several years should find out what type of implants were used during the medical procedure. They also indicated if a person has received a DePuy hip replacement they should be tested again to make sure the implant is working correctly.
DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuits
According to statistics hundreds of thousands of individuals have received one or more of the Depuy implants. Many of these patients have received revision surgeries due to faulty metal-to-metal implants. J&J indicated it stopped selling the product due to low sales volumes but it was likely due to a high failure rate.
These metal-to-metal implants are generating metallic debris that is damaging soft tissue in the body and in some cases paralyzing patients. The medical condition which is called metallosis has been related to various different replacements including hip, knee joints, shoulders, wrist, and elbow joints.
There are a growing number of lawsuits being filed each day against DePuy and J&J. These lawsuits are still in the preliminary stages however DePuy has indicated it will reimburse certain expenses related to the implants. What we know is these hip replacements have affected thousands of individuals. Many have gone through second surgeries costing thousands of dollars in just medical expenses. These surgeries are very painful and can take weeks or even months of rehabilitation. While DePuy and J&J claim they will cover reasonable expenses related to the implants, there are other costs that should be reimbursed.
