DePuy ASR XL Acetabular™ Hip Replacement Recall: A Terrible Problem that You Don't Have to Face Alone

In late August, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. announced a recall of its ASR XL AcetabularTM metal on metal hip replacement system. Surgeons began using the ASR XL AcetabularTM hip replacement system in the United States in 2005. Since then, tens of thousands of patients have received DePuy hip replacements that studies show are dangerous and defective. The five-year failure rate of the ASR XL AcetabularTM hip replacement system is roughly 13%, or 1 in 8 patients.

The size of this recall is staggering. In total, over 93,000 DePuy ASR XL AcetabularTM hip replacement and hip resurfacing systems were used in surgeries worldwide. While it is unknown precisely how many DePuy hip replacements patients in the United States received, it is certainly in the tens of thousands. That's thousands of aunts and uncles, grandmothers and grandfathers, mothers and fathers made to worry, fret, and possibly have to undergo more painful medical procedures because of the DePuy recall.

If you or a loved one is affected by this recall, you need to take action. Please schedule an appointment with your orthopedic surgeon and speak to your physician about the need to replace the hip replacement system, and the need to perform certain blood tests to measure the level of metal ions in your blood. According to DePuy, ion levels may be high even if you are not experiencing any symptoms.
