Patients Affected by DePuy Hip Replacement Systems Recall Aren’t Alone

It might be easy for a lot of us to forget about a recall after months have passed, but we’re not the ones who have suffered serious complications or endured the pain and burden of additional surgery to correct a problem that shouldn’t have existed in the first place.

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company, launched a recall for ASR XL Acetabular Systems and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems in 2010, but some patients are likely to still be paying the physical and emotional, not to mention financial, toll. The DePuy hip replacement device recall was initiated after numerous patients required a second hip replacement procedure, or revision surgery, because their hip implant failed or they experienced atypical side effects.

Data from 2010 provided by the National Joint Registry of England and Wales highlighted a five-year revision rate of about 12 percent for the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and about 13 percent for the ASR XL Acetabular System.

According to a CNNMoney article, DePuy stated back in 2010 that it planned on covering “reasonable and customary costs” of monitoring and treatment for services relating to recalled hip implants for failure and complications, including revision surgeries. With that being said, patients still don’t have a solid guarantee that they will be fully compensated for what they have had to pay for and endure.

Having hip replacement surgery in the first place is a lot to deal with, having corrective surgery after that because of poor implant design is another story.
