DePuy Hip Recall Information
At issue is the high rate of repeat surgeries needed by people who have received the parts. An estimated 93,000 people will be affected by Johnson & Johnson’s latest product recall. Affected hip replacement parts involved in the recall include the DePuy ASR XL Ace tabular System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Patients who reported problems in the first five years and had revision surgery reported a variety of symptoms, including pain, swelling and problems walking. These symptoms are normal for patients following a hip replacement, but can be a sign that something is wrong if they continue or come back frequently. Additionally, metal debris spreading in the hip area has been reported due to the metal components moving together.
We are reviewing any cases involving individuals who have had a DePuy hip device implanted as well individuals who are unsure of the person has had revision surgery, or the person is experiencing hip pain, hip swelling or difficulty walking.
