DePuy Hip Recall Attorneys Serving All Of The United States
The Florida defective DePuy hip replacement lawsuit attorneys at the law firm of Babbitt & Johnson P.A. are currently reviewing cases involving defective hip replacement systems manufactured and distributed by DePuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson.
Concerns of the DePuy Hip Replacements
In August of 2010, DePuy announced the recall of two of its hip replacement systems due to high failure rates in the DePuy ASR™ XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. Thousands of patients complained of a wide variety of issues, including pain when weight is applied, difficulty walking, loosening, inflammation and tumors, among others. Many patients have been forced to undergo painful revision surgeries to correct the problem.
Another major concern with certain DePuy systems is their use of metal-on-metal components, including the DePuy ASR™ XL Acetabular System and the DePuy Pinnacle® Acetabular Cup System. While initially touted for their added stability and longer life, a growing body of evidence indicates that, as they loosen, the device releases microscopic bits of metal that get into and contaminate the bloodstream, eventually leading to a condition called metallosis.
