hip recall of the DePuy ASR hip cup comes years after the Johnson Law
Firm's hip implant lawyers' investigation of the DePuy hip implant
revealed published data and DePuy hip patients' reports indicating that
the DePuy hip device was defective and that the DePuy hip recall was
necessary for the safety of the patients.
Patients with the Depuy ASR ACETABULAR CUP revisions should contact us
about their rights. Depuy markets the ASR hip cup under the brand name
ASR (Articular Surface Replacement). The DePuy ASR™ System is a large
diameter, high performance metal-on-metal hip resurfacing device.
Numerous FDA reports of patients with loose DePuy ASR Acetabular Cups
have been made by doctors after performing revision surgery.
The ASR hip cup revision reports also mention instances of loosening,
pseudotumour and metallosis / (sic) metalosis. Surgeons have noted upon
revsion that the DePuy ASR hip cup was "loose and easy to revise” and
"the cup popped right out. There was no evidence of any bony ingrowth.”
This is in spite of the surgeon’s prerevision observation that "The
patient was revised to address complaint of extreme pain when weight
bearing. X-rays looked good, and cup was in position.”
The Johnson Law Firm is filing individual DePuy Hip lawsuits for our
clients who received the DePuy ASR hip replacement. We do not file our
clients cases as part of any DePuy Hip class action.
