DePuy Orthopaedics Voluntarily Recalls ASR Hip Implant Due to High Failure Rate

The DePuy Orthopaedics unit of Johnson & Johnson voluntarily recalled two types of hip implants on August 26, 2010.  Just one of the recalled products was sold here in the United States: the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System hip implant.   Earlier this year, The New York Times reported that the FDA has received hundreds of complaints since 2008 from patients who experienced pain and other symptoms that led to revision surgery within the first five years of receiving the ASR hip implant.  New data indicates that approximately 13% of patients (or 1 in 8) with the ASR hip implant have suffered through a second hip surgery to remove the defective implant.  The ASR hip implant was available to patients in the U.S. in July of 2003.
