Share Article

Because only about 3300, of the 30,000+ recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified by the federal court in Ohio, the US Drug Watchdog is strongly encouraging every recipient, or family member of a ASR DePuy hip implant to call the group immediately, if the DePuy ASR hip implant recipient is suffering pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility." The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August of 2010, because of a high failure rate. The group says, "It has already been very well documented that there is an extremely high failure rate for the ASR DePuy hip implants, and we need to get every victim identified as soon as possible, in order to try to get them some actual help, that could include significant compensation." The DePuy ASR hip implant device was used between 2005, and mid 2010. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, be please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, even if the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant has yet to fail, or started showing symptoms of a failure." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

only about 3300, of 30,000+ DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified by the court. We could have 10,000's of ASR DePuy hip implant victims in the US, and because of not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery they say nothing

Because no one who has ever gone through a hip implant surgery, also known as a revision surgery ever wants to do it again, the US Drug Watchdog says, "We are strongly urging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant from 2005, until the summer of 2010 to ask if it was a metal-on-metal DePuy ASR hip implant, out of fear the family member may not want to complain." The group says, "At this moment only about 3300, of 30,000+ DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified by the court. We could have tens of thousands of ASR DePuy hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help, in the form of compensation." For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Important Note:The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have learned the makers of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant have been writing recipients of this hip implant, and offering to pay their co-pays for the replacement of this hip implant-what an insult." They say, "In reality, recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant might be owed hundreds of thousands of dollars, and we find this manufacturers letter campaign to be nothing short of reprehensible. Offering to pay a co-pay-when the victim could be handicapped, or crippled for life?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Symptoms of the recalled ASR Depuy hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all ASR DePuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. Because of the ordeal involved in hip implant replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, we also want to make certain all recipients of the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant get the best possible compensation for their pain, and suffering. Even if the DePuy ASR hip implant has not yet failed, we still want to identify all recipients."
