On August 2010 Johnson and Johnson did a voluntary recall of the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System TM total hip replacement and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. It has become evident over time that DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, may have known about the complications with theses devices as early as 2007. Tests resulting in complications from an Australian study resulted in the company pulling the devices off the market in Australia. The company reported to have 93, 000 hip replacements and in the U.S alone, they have recorded 25, 000 Depuy hip revision surgery. All these people qualify for a Depuy Hip Lawsuit.
History of Approval
The DePuy ASR TM Hip Implant devices were approved by the FDA because DePuy claimed they were “substantially equivalent” to three other hip implant devices. It is interesting that the three other hip implant devices were all also approved through the 510(k) Process, with the manufacturers claiming their devices were “substantially equivalent” to other approved medical devices. None of the devices had ever undergone the rigorous clinic testing.
(August 26, 2010) – DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., announced it is voluntarily recalling the ASR™ XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System used in hip replacement surgery due to the number of patients who required a second hip replacement procedure, called a revision surgery.Depuy Orthopedics, Inc. had to recall about 93,000 depuy hip implants due to their high chance of failure. If you are one of those individuals that happen to be affected by the depuy recall contact the dePuy Hip replacement helpline Arizona today.
