DePuy Hip Loosening
Patients who received a DePuy ASR implant during hip replacement surgery may experience loosening of the metal-on-metal hip implant, which can result in unexplained pain and often requires revision surgery to correct.
DePuy implant loosening occurs when the metal cup portion of the hip implant fails to remain in the position where it was attached to the bone. While it is common for all hip implants to loosen over time, DePuy ASR hip replacements were recalled in August 2010 because they were more than twice as likely as other hip implants to fail within five years.
Many hip replacement patients have been forced to undergo revision surgery to repair loosening and other complications caused by DePuy’s ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System.
Patients who have experienced pain or other unexplained problems with a hip replacement may wish to speak with their doctors to determine the source of their discomfort and the best course of action for treatment.
If you or a loved one received a DePuy hip replacement or another device and have experienced pain or undergone revision surgery to replace the implant, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
