The defective ASR XL device from DePuy Orthopaedics has been under much scrutiny over the several last years. Defects in devices manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. have led to an unusually high number of hip implant patients needing revisionary surgery for a second hip replacement. A flood of DePuy hip replacement lawsuits already have been filed.
Much evidence exists linking this hip replacement product to a number of different health issues such as cobalt poisoning, bone fractures around the device, dislocation of the implant’s ball and socket, and a variety of additional complications.
The president of DePuy Orthopaedics is refusing to admit that the hip replacement product is in fact defective. Stating that the product recall was initiated due to its inability to meet “clinical expectations”, the president of the company and their legal representation continue to claim that the recall was not an admission of defect.
If you are affected by the DePuy hip replacement recall, DePuy says the company is willing to offer hip replacement settlements to cover patients’ costs.
