DePuy Orthopedics, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, has voluntarily recalled the ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System that are used in hip replacement surgeries. These systems first became available for surgery in July 2003. If you, someone in your family, or a friend had hip surgery after July 2003, you may have a hip system involved in this recall.
What problems might develop?This recall was issued after recent studies in England and Wales found that these systems failed at an alarming rate. Revision or a secondary surgery may be required if you are experiencing any of the following: pain, loosening of the components, malalignment, infection, fracture, dislocation, or metal sensitivity. Even if you are not yet having complications, there is still a chance you may develop medical problems in the future.
What should I do if I think I have a hip system that is part of this recall?DePuy does not keep a list of all the patients who received an ASR hip. You should contact your orthopedic surgeon or the hospital where your surgery took place to find out if you received an ASR hip. If you received a hip implant ID card, the type of system may be listed there. You may also have recently received a letter from your orthopedic surgeon alerting you to the recall. If you are unable to find out what model hip implant you have, we can help.
We can help you.If you need help, let our law firm get the answers you need. If you believe that you might have an ASR hip system, call our law firm immediately for a free and confidential case evaluation. We understand that many patients who have had hip surgery will be concerned by this recall, but we want to help you. Even if you are not having pain or complications now, do not wait to contact our lawyers.
