Problems Linked to Faulty DePuy Hip Implants

In 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, recalled certain parts used in hip replacements between 2003 and 2009. The recall includes the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System.

Potential complications include:

  • Infection
  • Metallosis
  • Loosening of the hip implant
  • Fractured bone near the hip implant
  • Hip implant dislocation

The metal-on-metal components have the potential to rub against one another, releasing metal fragments and causing many of the problems listed above. A hip implant failure can lead to swelling, immobility and excruciating pain.
