DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits
In 2010 DePuy Orthopedics, which owned by Johnson & Johnson, recalled more than 93,000 defective hip replacement systems due to the large number of patients that required a second hip replacement surgery due to tissue damage, pain and inflammation.
The hip devices involved in the recall are:
- ASR XL Acetabular System, a total hip replacement system sold worldwide.
- ASR Hip Resurfacing System, a partial hip replacement available the U.S.
People with DePuy hip implants often experience loosening or detachment of the implant, implant dislocation or bone fractures around the implant. As a result there have been thousands of DePuy hip implant lawsuits in the United States.
According to a British study, one out of every eight hip replacements with the DePuy hip implant system will likely fail and require a second hip replacement surgery within five years.
