DePuy Hip Implant Symptoms & Side Effects

Feb 16, 2011

Symptoms of a DePuy ASR™ hip implant failure include:

  • Unexplained Hip Pain
  • Thigh Pain or Groin Pain
  • Pain with Walking
  • Pain Rising from a Seated Position
  • Pain with Weight Bearing

These symptoms could be a warning that there may be a DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement device failure, such as:

  • Loosening of the DePuy ASR™ implant, which occurs when the implant does not stay attached to the bone in the proper position.
  • Dislocation of the DePuy ASR™ implant, which occurs where two parts of the implant that move against each other are no longer aligned.
  • Fracture of the hip bone, which is where the bone around the implant breaks.

A failure of the DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement system could lead to the necessity of a second hip replacement surgery, known as a revision surgery. DePuy advises that regardless of whether you are suffering from the above symptoms, you should schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon as soon as possible.
