Seeger Weiss Investigates DePuy Hip Replacement Recall

If you're looking for information about the 2012 Stryker hip implant recall, please visit http://www.seegerweiss.com/stryker-hip-recall.

Industry giant Johnson & Johnson and its medical device subsidiary, DePuy Orthopaedics, has recalled two acetyabular cups hip replacement systems because of their high rate of failures and new data showing a higher number of patients needing a second hip replacement. The action follows extensive reports of hip replacement pain and failures from the defective products and asks for medical and orthopaedic surgeons to monitor their patients more closely.

Following many months of pain, inconvenience and rehabilitation therapy for hip replacement surgery with their DePuy ASR hip replacement system, one in eight patients will be forced to undergo the ordeal again due to defects in the ASR system. That’s exactly what the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) reports.

Thousands of hip replacements take place each year and are usually successful. However, that’s not the case for patients who underwent defective hip replacement using DePuy’s ASR Hip Resurfacing System or the ASR XL Acetabular Cups System.

DePuy Orthopaedics, maker of the recalled acetabular cups was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1998. They design, manufacture, market and distribute products for reconstructing damaged or diseased joints. DePuy’s hip resurfacing product, a form of hip replacement arthroplasty, provided patients with an alternative to total hip replacement where less bone could be removed and less hip dislocations occur. Unfortunately those benefits would be greatly outweighed by the dangers of DePuy’s defective hip replacement.
