Bone Erosion and Destruction

After DePuy recalled its ASR hip implant, one of the main concerns with the product was the increased risk of bone erosion or destruction because of metal ions releasing. Minimal bone erosion or loss is common with any hip replacement surgery, but DuPuy’s product causes erosion to the degree where the hip cannot be repaired surgically, forcing that patient to lose the ability to walk.

If you or a loved one has suffered a significant amount of bone erosion because of a DePuy ASR hip implant, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation. To speak with a qualified attorney, contact the DePuy hip implant lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today and schedule a consultation.

How We Can Help

DePuy ASR hip implants were primarily composed of chromium and cobalt, which produced an unsafe amount of metal debris inside the body. When this happens, the human body responds by producing an excess amount of osteoclast bone cells. These cells work to break down cells that are responsible for building bone.

When these cells are released, they attack the metal debris but also attack the surrounding bone, slowly eroding healthy bone cells over time. Eventually, this constant erosion will wear at the bone until it can no longer support a replacement acetebular cup, resulting in considerable bone loss and an inability to walk.

If you have a DePuy ASR hip implant you may be at risk of substantial bone erosion. Your doctor should test for excess levels of metal in your blood as soon as possible so you can take appropriate action.
