DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits in Oklahoma City
In August of 2010, DePuy Orthopedic Inc. (a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary) issued a massive recall of two of its ASRTM hip implant devices, the ASRTM XL Acetabular System and the ASRTM Resurfacing System. After hundreds of complaints and after actually recalling ASR hip implants from the Australian market in December of 2009, DePuy finally recalled these faulty medical devises from the United States.
It is estimated that ASR hip implants have been implanted in approximately 93,000 patients worldwide, with approximately one in eight requiring a second hip replacement surgery within five years. This is more than twice the normal rate. Hip implant revision surgery is expensive and may have the potential to lead to serious complications.
