Problems Common to Defective Hip Implants
DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, recalled ASR hip implants in August of 2010. Two models, the ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System were part of the recall. Defects of these implants include a shallow artificial cup and metal-on-metal construction of the artificial joint.
Zimmer Durom Cup hip implants and Stryker hip implants have also been recalled due to defects and high failure rates. If you or a loved one has suffered injury or wrongful death from complications from artificial hip implants, our attorneys can help.
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total hip replacement is performed on hundreds of thousands of U.S. patients every year. Defective hip implants have caused a range of problems for patients, including:
- Loss of bone
- Metal toxicity affecting major organs, blood, eyes, ears, skin and cognitive function
- Trouble sitting, standing and walking
Many of these patients had to undergo another surgery to replace the defective implant, causing further pain, temporary disability and risk of surgical complications.
