Four ASR lawsuits filed in North Texas

Posted on June 3rd, 2011 No Comments

Last month, three DePuy ASR Acetabular Hip Replacement lawsuits were consolidated in the United States Court for the Northern District of Ohio.  A fourth lawsuit involving the recalled ASR hip implant was filed in United States District Court for the Western District of Texas.

The ASR hip replacements were recalled on August 24, 2010 by manufacturer DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson.  The recall described receiving patient reports that the implants were defective for malalignment, loosened components, and for causing infection, bone fractures, metal sensitivity, pain, and dislocation.

Furthermore, the metal hip replacement has been studied for increasing metal levels in patients’ blood.  A study published by the British Orthopaedic Association found that six years after having an ASR replacement, the chance of failure increases to around 49 percent.

An attorney involved in one of the cases said of the DePuy ASR hip replacements, “This unsafe device should not have been on the market.  Unfortunately, the ASR devices were implanted in approximately 93,000 people worldwide.”
