Possible Defects Affecting Your Hip Implant

Hip implants have greatly improved the quality of life and health of patients who have suffered hip injuries or chronic hip pain. Many implants produced today are made of synthetic material that replaces the joint to reduce problems of rubbing, grinding, dislocation, or other hip joint issues. Unfortunately, however, some patients have been treated with defective implants that give them trouble even after surgery. If you are experiencing pain, limited range of motion, or other problems after having a DePuy hip replacement implanted, you may have been given a defective unit.

Types of Defects

DePuy ASR hip implants produced after July 2003 have been recalled because of the greater percentage of defects found in the product line. You may have attributed minor irritation and pain to post-surgery issues, assuming that the problem would subside, only to have it worsen. If this has happened to you, check with your doctor to see if your implant qualifies under the DePuy ASR recall. Some known defects of the recalled hip replacements include:

  • Frequent hip implant dislocation
  • Loose hip joint caused by loosening of the implant
  • Causing fractures in the bone surrounding the implant

Any of these defects can affect your daily life and prevent you from fully benefiting from your hip surgery.
