Reasons for ASR Hip Implant Failure

DePuy’s ASR hip replacement system, introduced in 2005, is a fully metal hip replacement. Approximately 40,000 people received ASR hip implants between 2005 and 2010 and, according to recent data, as many as half of these people may experience premature implant failure.

The reason for this high incidence of failure is the design of the ASR hip replacement system. If you or someone you love received a DePuy ASR hip implant and it caused you harm, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187 for a free case evaluation.

ASR Hip Implant Design Defects

The hip replacement engineers at DePuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, designed the ASR hip replacement system to be a more durable alternative to other hip implant options on the market. The fully metal design was supposed to provide extra strength and durability to the implant.

Unfortunately, this fully metal design can cause:

  • Slipping in the artificial ball and socket joint
  • Stunted bone growth
  • Metal shavings to enter the bloodstream

Each of these dangers may seriously harm the affected individual and may limit his or her mobility. Victims of these faulty hip implants should contact a DePuy lawsuit attorney for more information about holding DePuy accountable for its faulty product.
