US Drug Watchdog Now Urges Family Members Of A Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipient To Help Them Identify Their Family Member To The Best Possible Attorneys

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog is strongly encouraging every recipient, or family member of a recalled DePuy ASR hip implant to call the group immediately, if the ASR DePuy hip implant recipient is suffering pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility, or if the person is concerned about a premature failure of a recalled DePuy ASR hip implant. The group says, "It has already been very well documented that there is an extremely high failure rate for the DePuy ASR hip implants, and we need to get every victim identified as soon as possible, in order to try to get them to the best possible attorneys." The DePuy ASR hip implant device was used between 2005, and August of 2010. They say, "Revision surgery to replace a defective DePuy ASR hip implant can be complex and long, and is more likely to result in more complications than the original surgery. This is because there is a reduced amount of bone to work with, due to the bone lost to the previous implant. Patients who receive revision surgery to replace a hip implant are almost four times more likely to suffer a dislocated hip." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, be please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, so we can get you to the best possible attorneys, or law firms." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Because only 3400 of the approximately 40,000 recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified, we are doing everything possible to get every recipient identified

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because only 3400 of the approximately 40,000 recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified, we are doing everything possible to get every recipient identified, out of fear if they are not represented by a national caliber attorney, or law firm, and identified by the federal court in Ohio; they could be left holding the bag down the road, should this specific hip implant prematurely fail. For this reason we are strongly encouraging individuals, or family members of individuals, who have had a hip replacement procedure involving a metal-on metal hip implant since 2005 to call us, so we can try to help determine if the hip implant device is a recalled DePuy ASR." In August of 2010 the DePuy ASR was recalled. The US Drug Watchdog has recently become aware of the fact that just a fraction of all recipients of the DePuy ASR have been identified, and even more problematic many of the people they talk to are younger adults in their 50's, 40's, and even their 30's. The group says, "Nothing is more important to us than trying to get all recalled DePuy ASR recipients identified, and then do our best to insure they get proper legal representation from top tier national caliber law firms."
