Do You Have A DePuy ASRTM Hip Replacement?

Aug 13, 2011

If you are uncertain if you have either of the recalled DePuy Hip Systems, contact your orthopedic surgeon. Your primary care physician or the hospital where the surgery took place should be able to provide you with the name of your surgeon if you can’t recall who performed the original surgery.

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.
