The US Drug Watchdog Expands Its DePuy ASR Hip Implant Victims Identification Initiative Because of The Low Numbers of DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipients Identified So Far

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation. At this moment, of the 40,000 US citizens, who received the now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, only about 3300 individuals have been identified by the court. We want to get every recipient identified to the best possible attorney, or law firm, because we do not want any DePuy ASR hip implant recipient left on the curb, holding the bag, for something that is not their fault." The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August 2010. According to the New York Times, "Tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations to replace their metal-on-metal hip implant over the next decade." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear there are tens of thousands of recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US who, 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 meaningful help in the form of legal representation with the focus being compensation."

Tragically, only about 3300 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation over the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified to the best possible attorneys because the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal 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. The ASR DePuy hip implants were surgically implanted on about 40,000 US citizens between 2005 and mid 2010. Tragically, only about 3300 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation over the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant. We are doing everything possible to change this dynamic." According to the New York Times, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device’s ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to make certain all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR get to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is vital when talking about the ordeal of a hip implant replacement, also known as revision surgery." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant failure include:

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 DePuy ASR hip implant recipients get to national caliber trial law firms or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, with the emphasis being compensation."
