Reason for recall of DePuy hip replacements

Posted on March 22nd, 2011 No Comments

DePuy Orthopedics, Inc., recalled two different types of hip replacement products in August 2010. The DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems were both recalled after the products were causing infections.

The replacement system is made of two metal pieces, a ball and a socket, and problems arose when the pieces began to rub together when victims moved around. The friction between the two items caused metal pieces to break off and lodge into the hip joint and surrounding tissue.

When the metal lodged into the victim’s bodies it caused their levels of chromium and cobalt in their bloodstream to become toxic. Toxic levels of heavy metal can cause multiple health issues such as hearing loss, cognitive impairment, visual impairment, peripheral neuropathy and rashes.
