DePuy ASR Hip Recall

The DePuy ASR (Articular Surface Replacement) Hip Resurfacing System and ASR XL Acetabular System total hip replacement, created by DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, have been recalled by the company, following data showing that more people than expected experienced pain or side effects as a result of the hip implant devices.

Many patients have since required a second hip replacement surgery due to the issues associated with the hip devices, and hundreds of lawsuits have been filed against DePuy following the onset of serious side effects.

All recipients of the DePuy ASR Hip Implant are entitled to legal compensation for their current and future health issues. For additional information about your legal options, please call 1-800-471-8602 or fill out the form on this page.

Data revealed that five years following implantation of the ASR Hip System, 12 percent of patients who received the ASR resurfacing device, and 13 percent of those who received the ASR total hip replacement required a hip replacement surgery.

The product first became available in July 2003 and the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip replacement device has been implanted in more than 13,000 patients internationally since it was first approved.

Side Effects and Design Flaw

Prior to the recall, many reports noted flaws and side effects associated with the hip system, including:

  • Loose cups
  • Allergic reactions to metallic debris
  • Development of a pseudotumor (a soft tissue mass that forms as a result of toxic reactions to an excess of metal debris)

Additionally, many doctors believe that the cup of the DePuy ASR hip implant is too shallow. This design flaw can lead to improper implantation and other health complications.

Next Steps

If you received the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System or ASR Hip Resurfacing System, DePuy or Johnson & Johnson may have reached out to you and sent you paperwork regarding the recall of these devices. Patients may wish to speak with a lawyer about their legal options before seeing a doctor and signing any documents provided by the companies. Patients who sign documents from DePuy or Johnson & Johnson may be signing a waiver that may prevent them from receiving any additional compensation from the company, should medical complications arise in the future.

Though some compensation may be provided to patients from the companies following the recall of the ASR devices, the compensation may not fully cover the medical bills that may add up following hip replacement surgery. The compansation also does not cover many blood tests or diagnostic tests that may be required by a doctor to ensure a patient is healthy and to check for a serious condition assocaited with the devices known as  "metallosis." The financial assistance may not cover additional expenses or pain and suffering, lost wages and loss of earning capacity.

It is important for patients to speak with a lawyer about your options before signing paperwork provided by DePuy or Johnson & Johnson. If you wish to learn more about your legal rights, please fill out the form on this page or call 1-800-471-8602.
