Many patients implanted with the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing hip replacements have reported problems with mobility. DePuy hip replacements were recalled in August 2010 due to an increased rate of failure compared to other artificial hip replacements.
Mobility issues are one of the first signs of underlying DePuy hip replacement complications. Difficulty walking is often accompanied by pain and swelling in the hip area. Over time, these symptoms can lead to more serious problems including hip implant loosening, fractures or broken bones and implant dislocation.
Patients filing hip replacement lawsuits against DePuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, allege that the devices are defective and that the company knew about problems for two years before issuing a recall.
