DePuy Hip Recall
DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. a division of Johnson & Johnson, has issued a recall of two hip replacement products because of their high failure rate leading to the need for a second surgery.
The Replacement Products Recalled
DePuy has recalled the following:
• The ASR XL Acetabular System – on the market since 2004
• The ASR Hip Resurfacing System – on the market since 2003 available only outside the USA
DePuy recalled the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR XL Acetabular System after data showed within 5 years, 1 out of 8 patients required a second surgery, because the artificial joint did not fit. Severe pain can result from a faulty hip replacement.
The hip implant recall affects an estimated 93,000 replacement systems and more than 29 different models of hip replacement implants.
