First Irish lawsuit against DePuy filed in April

Posted on May 10th, 2012 No Comments

The first Irish lawsuit against Depuy Orthopaedics was filed in April 2012 claiming that the predecessor to the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip replacement system, the DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement System, caused the man to require a corrective hip surgery.

The Pinnacle lawsuit in Ireland was filed by a 51-year-old man after he received a Pinnacle hip implant in February of 2009. During the summer months of that year, the man reported having serious pain from the implant and developed an infection near the site of the surgery and this caused him to undergo a corrective surgery in 2011. Those who have second replacement surgeries are more likely to suffer from dislocation or mobility issues with their hips.

The ASR hip replacement system was modeled after the pinnacle system and after multiple failures, nearly 93,000 systems were recalled. The ASR metal hip implants made between 2005 to 2010 were all recalled. It has been said that nearly 3,500 people in Ireland alone have been affected by defective ASR systems.
