DePuy Hip Recall
Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopedics subsidiary has recalled an estimated 93,000 hip implants due to a high rate of repeat surgeries. Hip replacements typically last around 15 years, whereas the DePuy replacements have failed within five years for one out of every eight patients. We are reviewing any cases where a DePuy hip device has caused discomfort, including hip pain, swelling or difficulty walking resulting in a revision surgery.

Issues Connected to DePuy Hip Recall Claims
Affected hip replacement parts involved in the recall include the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Patients who reported problems in the first several years and had revision surgery reported a variety of problems, including pain, swelling and problems walking.
Other issues that may indicate a serious problem with the hip implant include:
Loosening of the cup – when the implant does not stay attached to the bone in the correct position
Dislocation – where the two parts of the implant that move against each other are no longer aligned
Metal debris – where metal particles from the component parts moving together spread around the hip
Fracture – where the bone around the implant may have broken
How do I know if I have a DePuy hip replacement?
If you are unsure of the type of hip device implant used, contact your orthopedic surgeon or primary care physician to determine if your hip implant is a recalled model.
