Depuy Orthopaedics (a company owned by Johnson & Johnson) has recently issued a recall of its “ASR” artificial hip components. There has been an alarming failure rate associated with the Depuy ASR XL and ASR Hip Resurfacing System, and patients with a failed hip component may suffer hip pain, inflammation, metal toxicity, loosening of the components, and total hip failure. Often, these problems require costly and painful hip revision surgeries.
The Depuy ASR Recall applies to hip replacement surgeries using Depuy ASR products performed in July 2003 and thereafter.
