Yes, you may be able to sue DePuy Orthopaedics if you suffered complications from an ASR XL Acetabular System or the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Both the ASR systems were recalled in 2010 due to significant complications resulting in patients and high failure rates.
DePuy claims that the ASR hip replacement models were tested for years before receiving regulatory clearance, however DePuy Orthopaedics voluntary recall is proven evidence that the manufacture was well aware that serious complications was a possible side effect and that the devices were expected to fail.
Some of the most common complications patients are experiencing from the ASR hip replacement system include:
- Pain/difficulty walking
- Bone fracture
- Dislocation of the implant
- Metallosis (metal poisoning)
- Revision surgery
