Johnson & Johnson DePuy ASR Hip Implant Prone to Early Failure

Depuy hip implant lawyer

The DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement was recalled in August 2010. Depuy hip implant lawsuits have now been consolidated in a multidistrict litigation in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Ohio.

Our firm is investigating reports of early failure of the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip replacement system. Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopaedics unit was already phasing out the ASR hip implant system when it finally acknowledged in March 2010 that the device was prone to early failure. By that time, the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) had received hundreds of reports describing early failure of the DePuy ASR hip implant system.

The DePuy ASR hip implant, meant to last approximately 15 years, can fail within only a few years of surgery. Victims of faulty DePuy ASR hip implants experience excruciating pain, and often have to undergo complicated and expensive replacement surgery. Even then, they may never fully recover from their injuries.
