Thousands in Australia affected by DePuy hip implants

Posted on November 9th, 2011 No Comments

Approximately 5,000 people in Australia could potentially be affected by defects in the DePuy ASR hip implant.  Thousands had the hip replacement implanted before DePuy’s recall in 2010.

The hip implants were advertised to last without failure or defect for around 15 years.  However, many patients who have received these hip replacement have found that the implant’s failure rate is much shorter than 15 years.

Studies suggest that between 12 to 13 percent of DePuy’s hip implants fail within 5 years.  With this information, officials predict that about 650 Australians have defective DePuy hip replacements.
