DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, announced that it is recalling its ASR XL Acetabular and ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems. These hip replacement systems, which are installed in 93,000 patients worldwide, were shown to have a failure requiring replacement within 5 years in 12 – 13% of patients in a recent UK study. All of the data pointing to problems with the DePuy ASR Hip Replacement Systems is not nearly as new.

The DePuy ASR Hip Replacment Systems are part of a metal-on-metal bearings class of devices that some have criticized for their potential to create debris that can lead to inflammation and tissue damage in some cases. The FDA had received over 400 complaints from users of the device prior to the DePuy ASR hip recall and a New York Times article reported that most major joint replacement surgery centers have also experienced issues with the hip replacement systems.

The law firm of Heninger Garrison Davis, LLC, which has created a DePuy Hip Recall news web site dedicated to providing the most recent news regarding the DePuy hip recall, has a history of handling hip replacement device products liability claims.
