All hip replacement recipients should be aware of ... where to turn if they need information about a hip implant recall
(PRWEB) December 11, 2011
The DePuy ASR XL hip replacement is a metal-on-metal hip orthotic manufactured by DePuy Orthotics, a division of Johnson and Johnson. The manufacturer acknowledged that the implant has shown a higher than average early failure rate, with most complications being reported within a few years of initial surgery. DePuy reports that about 93,000 people have received these implants, and ordered a recall in August 2010.
All hip replacement recipients should be aware of the potential risks associated with these orthotics, especially where to turn if they need information about a hip implant recall.
