US Drug Watchdog Now Says Its Vital To Identify All Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipients & Get Them The Best Attorneys Because Only A Fraction Have been Identified

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Of the 30,000+ recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, only about 3000 US citizens have been identified by the US court handling the cases related to this recalled hip implant, and we are determined to do everything possible to get every DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified to the best possible law firms. DePuy hip implants are failing, or have failed at an unacceptably high rate. As a result there was a recall on this hip implant device in August of 2010 by the US FDA. The DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implants were surgically implanted on tens of thousands of US citizens between 2005 and early 2010." According to the US FDA, 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 US Drug Watchdog is urging family members of hip implant recipients, who received a hip implant between 2005, and mid 2010, to ask if the hip implant was an DePuy ASR. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant, regardless if it has already failed, or not, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

because of the high failure rate, we think it is vital to get every DePuy ASR recipient identified, regardless if this specific hip implant has started to fail, or not

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Of the recalled 30,000+ DePuy ASR hip implant recipients only a little more that 3300 have been identified by the federal court. We think the actual number of citizens, who received a recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, and have then been identified to the Ohio Federal Court handling these recall cases should be closer to 10,000 to 15,000, and we intend to do everything possible to identify every recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, in order to insure these people get to the best possible attorneys, and compensation." The group fears because many individuals who received a ASR DePuy hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, they do not complain. Because of this, the US Drug Watchdog is strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR hip implant." They say, "Even more worrisome to us is the fact that the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant was sold as the right hip implant for younger adults who wanted to have an active or athletic lifestyle."

The US Drug Watchdog indicates 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 defective medical device, or recalled drug 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. In our opinion, the settlements, or compensation related to the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant will be significant, and because of the high failure rate, we think it is vital to get every DePuy ASR recipient identified, regardless if this specific hip implant has started to fail, or not."
