DePuy Hip Replacement Cases
Our Cleveland Injury Attorneys Are Standing By
Unfortunately, yet another prosthetic device has been recalled due to unexpectedly high complication rates. On August 24, 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, voluntarily recalled its hip replacement product, the ASR™ XL Acetabular System.
DePuy claimed the recall was prompted by data it received in 2010 from the National Joint Registry of England and Wales. This study demonstrated that approximately 13% (or 1 in 8 patients) receiving this particular prosthesis required revision surgery. This revision rate far exceeds the <1% revision rate experienced with similar devices. While the reasons for this unusually high revision rate are still under investigation, DePuy has conceded that a significant percentage of the patients requiring revisions have experienced a reaction to the prosthesis' metal. When the metal pieces rub together, tiny particles of metal can enter the bloodstream setting off a severe allergic reaction in some patients. If this occurs, treatment is critical. Without appropriate treatment, a patient's condition can deteriorate and the joint can be severely damaged.
