Defective DePuy ASR Hip Replacement Recall
A DePuy ASR hip recall was issued by the FDA in July, 2010 due to the high failure rate of these defective metal-on-metal hip implants. Numerous defective DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuits have been filed by patients who have experienced problems and complications with their DePuy ASR hip replacement implant following hip replacement surgery.
The DePuy ASR hip replacement recall was prompted by continued problems with these defective hip replacement devices. These problems include the need for additional hip replacement revision surgery due to loosening parts, fractures, dislocations, pain, and metallosis - elevated Chromium and Cobalt levels in blood.

Defective DePuy ASR Hip Implants Can Cause Serious Complications
The defective design of the DePuy ASR hip replacement cup, which is shallower than similar hip replacement devices, is responsible for many of the product’s problems. The DePuy ASR hip replacement cup doesn’t always affix to the bone as intended. Too often, this results in a “loose cup” that must be revised, or removed and replaced by a corrective surgery.
The DePuy ASR hip replacement implant is a metal-on-metal hip replacement system. These defective hip implants can shed metal particles and debris into the body as they wear resulting in high Cobalt and Chromium levels in the blood know as metallosis. That metal debris can cause severe inflammatory reactions in some patients, damaging muscles and soft tissue and lead to bone loss. As a result of the metallosis, a second corrective hip replacement surgery is often required to replace the defective hip device.
