From the Wisconsin Law Journal

“We think it’s going to be a pretty big litigation,” agreed Chris Seeger, a principal at Seeger Weiss, a New York-based personal injury law firm.

DePuy sold about 93,000 ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems and ASR XL Acetabular Systems. The company has reported that about 12 percent of patients required revision surgery within five years after implantation.

Seeger said the problem appears to be with the metal-on-metal design of the device, which “seems not to adhere well in the hip joint.”

“The problem is that if there’s a surgical revision required, the whole thing has to be re-done,” he said. “That’s a nasty, messy surgery.”

Notwithstanding claims relating to this product, the drug/medical device remains approved by the U.S. FDA.
