DePuy hip replacement litigation

As a Corpus Christi defective medical device lawyer, I am closely following the DePuy hip replacement litigation. In September of 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. recalled its ASR Hip Replacement Systems. The recall followed numerous reports of a much higher than reasonably acceptable failure rate. Patients were often having to have another hip replacement surgery within five years. It is believed that the DePuy ASR hip systems have been put in approximately 93,000 individuals. This DePuy ASR hip systems recall will only affect those persons who had hip surgery after July of 2003. Unfortunately, many thousands of individuals have already reported experiencing numerous DePuy ASR hip systems problems. These problems have included swelling, serious or constant and a loosening or dislocation of the DePuy ASR hip systems implant.
