Faulty Hip Products

In August 2010, DePuy Artificial Surface Replacement (ASR) issued a voluntary recall of its ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System, after it was discovered that metal in the DePuy ASR was causing serious side effects and had a failure rate of one in every eight patients.

Types of Faulty Hip Products & Negligence

Data received by DePuy showed that more people than expected who received the ASR Hip System, experienced pain whilst walking, swelling and other symptoms that led to a second hip replacement. DePuy identified the main reasons for the failure of the hip replacement was due to the following:

  • Component loosening
  • Component misalignment
  • Infection
  • Fracture of the bone
  • Dislocation of the the component
  • Metal sensitivity and pain
  • And other faulty hip product errors

More serious complications of having the hip replacement system included increased metal ion levels in the blood, necrosis, swelling, nerve damage, tissue damage and/or muscle damage. If you or a loved one has been affected by a faulty hip product which has prolonged or exacerbated a medical condition, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
