The Background: Why the Recall was Issued
To give you a little background, Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics have issued a global recall of two of its FDA approved hip implant devices – ASRTM XL Acetabular System or the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. The recall was issued after the FDA received numerous patient complaints of side effects and adverse reactions from those who received the ASRTM Hip System. A whopping 93,000 patients worldwide have received the implants.
What Are the Complications and Symptoms?
The metal on metal construction of these implants produces debris that lead to severe complications, including premature failure, metallosis, infection, dislocation, immobility, and even an increased risk of cancer. Symptoms may include pain in the hip, thigh or groin areas, difficulty and/or pain while walking. Some patients may also require revision surgeries.
What Should I Do Next?
If you or your loved one had a hip implant using ASRTM and have any of these complaints, you should consult your doctor and contact an attorney, as you may be entitled to seek compensation. Johnson & Johnson and DePuy have paid out several billion dollars to thousands of affected patients, and more lawsuits are being settled.
