US Drug Watchdog Urges Family Members To Help Identify Loved One Recipients Of The Recalled ASR DePuy Hip Implant Because Many Are Living In Pain

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Nothing is more important to us than getting every recalled ASR DePuy hip implant recipient identified. Because of age or not wanting to go through hip revision surgery, we fear many ASR DePuy hip implant recipients are saying nothing of their pain. Because of this, we are strongly encouraging family members to ask if their mom, dad, brother, sister or friend received an ASR DePuy hip implant." The time frames for the now recalled ASR DePuy hip implant are 2005-2010. The ASR DePuy hip implant has been recalled because of a much higher than normal failure rate. Symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The group says, "If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
