DePuy ASR Hip Replacements and Resurfacing Systems

Article by

In August 2010 DePuy, a division of Johnson and Johnson, voluntarily recalled its ASR XL Acetabular hip replacement system and its hip resurfacing system.

Data has shown that within five years of implantation, approximately 12% of patients who had received the ASR resurfacing device and 13% of patients who had received the ASR total hip replacement needed to have revision surgery. This equates to 1 patient in 8.

These astonishing figures apply to the DePuy ASR hip replacement and resurfacing system which were implanted between July 2003 and August 2010.

Garden House Solicitors strongly recommend any person who has had a hip replacement or resurfacing system (“hip implant”) since July 2003 to speak with their operating surgeon or hospital to seek confirmation of the brand of hip implant they have received.

Those who have received a DePuy ASR hip implant may be entitled to make a claim for injuries sustained as a result of a defect in the hip implant and any finacial losses associated with such an injury.
