Leadership with Depuy Hip Implant Lawsuits

DePuy Orthopaedics, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, issued a worldwide recall of ASR hip replacement systems on August 26, 2010. The recall includes two products:
  • ASR Hip Resurfacing System and
  • ASR XL Acetabular System

A large number of ASR hip replacements have been defective or failed completely. The ASR Hip implants can fail by becoming loose, fracturing the bone around the implant, or dislocating the implant's ball and socket. Defective ASR hip replacements can cause swelling, pain, and difficulty walking. Metal particles can flake off of the ASR Hip replacement and enter the bloodstream. Data shows that DePuy hip system recipients are in need of a second hip replacement procedure at higher-than-expected rates. Replacement procedures are normally only required when an artificial joint causes pain or difficulty in walking. Per DePuy, there are approximately 93,000 of these devices implanted worldwide since they were introduced in July 2003.
