Depuy Hip Replacement
Depuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is a manufacturer of metal-on-metal hip replacement systems, which have been marketed throughout the United States as being more durable and harder to dislocate than more traditional types of implants. Unfortunately, concerns have resulted in the recall of some of these implants, including ASR and ASR XL hip replacement systems.
Some of these complications from defective hip replacement systems have included infection, inflammation, muscle damage, tendon damage and nerve damage.

In August of 2010, DePuy recalled its ASR and ASR XL hip replacement systems after pressure from the FDA over the systems' high failure rates.
As the ball-and-joint scrape against each other, particles of metal debris wear off and can float freely within the joint. This debris can become embedded into nearby tissues or enter the bloodstream, causing medical complications including heart failure, thyroid problems, blindness and cognitive impairment.Experienced Massachusetts Depuy Hip Replacement Lawyers
