FDA has until November to review all-metal hip implant producers’ study plans

Posted on October 20th, 2011 No Comments

In May, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration asked all manufacturers of all-metal hip implants, like DePuy Orthopaedics, to begin research into their metal-on-metal hip replacement devices’ failure rates, defects, and risks.

In addition, the FDA asked the hip replacement producers to submit plans for their study that they would then review, and possibly approve, by November.

Many fear that the proposed studies will be invalid because the research into all-metal hip implants is being done by companies with major financial stakes and biases.

Also, many of these metal-on-metal hip implant manufacturers do not maintain patient registries, making research into their failure rates and risks much more difficult. ┬áSome of the proposals that have already been submitted to the FDA use hospitals’ and other health systems’ registries.

If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of the DePuy ASR hip implant, contact the DePuy hip recall attorneys of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 and discuss your situation with one of our lawyers today.
