DePuy Hip Replacement Recall
On August 26, 2010, DePuy Orthopedics, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, announced the recall of its hip implants known as the ASR XL Acetabular and ASR Hip Resurfacing systems. The DePuy ASR hip was implanted in 93,000 patients worldwide. Up to one in eight patients may be forced to undergo revision surgery due to a high early failure rate with the DePuy ASR artificial hip.
Atterbury & Kammer is moving forward with claims involving this recall. For more information, click here.
