Symptoms of a DePuy ASR™ Hip Failure
- Unexplained Hip Pain
- Thigh Pain or Groin Pain
- Pain with Walking
- Pain Rising from a Seated Position
- Pain with Weight Bearing
These symptoms could be a warning that there may be a hip device failure, such as:
- Loosening of the implant, which occurs when the implant does not stay attached to the bone in the proper position.
- Dislocation of the implant, which occurs where two parts of the implant that move against each other are no longer aligned.
- Fracture of the hip bone, which is where the bone around the implant breaks.
A failure of the system could lead to the necessity of a second hip replacement surgery, known as a revision surgery. DePuy advises that regardless of whether you are suffering from the above symptoms, you should schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon as soon as possible.
If you or someone you know has been implanted with a DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement System or you have undergone or are scheduled to undergo a revision surgery, you may be entitled to compensation.
