On August 24, 2010, DePuy Orthopedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, announced a global recall of the ASR™ XL Acetabular System. This total hip replacement has been available in the U.S. since July 2003. Included in the recall was the DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System, a partial replacement, only approved for use outside the U.S. The recall was initiated following a study which showed that many patients receiving the hip implants suffered from severe pain, stiffness and swelling, followed by popping and grinding sensations, which interfered with their ability to walk, stand, or sit for long periods of time. These symptoms worsened over time resulting in severe disability often requiring a second hip replacement surgery, called revision surgery.

There are further concerns regarding toxicity and high levels of chromium and cobalt in the bloodstream from the rubbing of the metal components.
Additional Complications Include:
- Cement extrusion
- Immediate dislocation
Complications that can occur years after surgery can include:
- aseptic loosening
- aggressive granulomatosis,
- stress shielding
- heterotopic ossification
- and prosthetic fracture
The DePuy Hip Replacement Helpline and The DePuy lawyers are concened about victims of the faulty DePuy. DePuy Orthopaedics recalled its ASR replacement hip system because its components can come loose, fracturing the bone around the implant, depositing metal fragments in the bloodstream, and causing pseudotumors, pain and the need for revision surgeries. The DePuy hip Replacement Helpline is hopeful that new legislation will protect victims in the future.
If you have a Depuy Hip Replacement you must:
- Check your blood for toxicity and high levels of Chromium and Cobalt.
- If you are having Complications see your Orthopedic Surgeon Immediately
- Consider Revision surgery if you have severe complications
- Contact the DePuy hip Replacement Helpline to speak to a Hip recall lawyer immediately before any revision surgery
