The Deadline to have all recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant recipients identified may be just two months away, so we are doing everything possible to get every recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified before it is too late

The US Drug Watchdog is warning all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR that it is vital they get identified by the best possible attorneys, even if their metal-on-metal hip implant device has not yet failed, because a possible looming deadline of August 2012. The group is concerned that once a settlement has been reached on the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant litigation, individuals who suffer a failure of the recalled hip implant may be up the creek, if they were not identified prior to the settlement. The US Drug Watchdog says,"The DePuy ASR 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. DePuy ASR hip implants were surgically implanted on about 40,000 US citizens between 2005 and mid 2010. What has us horrified is only about 3400 individuals so far have been identified by the federal court in Ohio that is handling the litigation. We intend to do everything possible to change this dynamic with the goal being every DePuy ASR recipient gets identified by the court, and we will suggest the best possible attorneys to streamline the process." 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 metal on metal hip implant. 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:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt in the blood of DePuy ASR recipients

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier advocate for medical device recipients, and pharmaceutical safety in the United States. The group says, "We think it is vital to get all recalled DePuy ASR recipients identified now, because in our opinion it is a very important way to protect their future."
