Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog is strongly encouraging every recipient, or family member of a ASR DePuy hip implant to call the group immediately, if they are suffering pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility The group says, "It has already been very well documented that there is an extremely high failure rate for the ASR DePuy hip implants, and we need to get every victim identified as soon as possible, in order to try to get them some actual help." The DePuy hip implant device was used between 2005, and early 2010. They say, "tragically a hip implant replacement surgery called revision surgery, is complicated, painful, and can come with huge risks." Revision surgery to replace a defective ASR DePuy 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 ASR DePuy hip implant, be please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
