August 24, 2010: DePuy Recall For ASR™ Metal-On-Metal Hip Joints

DePuy Recall News – DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson, has recalled its ASR™ XL Acetabular Hip System and ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System because of the number of patients requiring a second hip replacement surgery (also referred to as a revision surgery) due to the early failure of their implanted DePuy ASR™ hip. Data from the UK joint registry indicated that revision surgery rates within 5 years of the initial implant surgery were approximately 13 percent.

Some patients also experienced an inflammatory or hypersensitivity reaction to the microscopic chromium and cobalt particles, which are generated as the metal-on-metal hip joint begins to wear away. The terms metallosis, metal hypersensitivity, chromium toxicity, or cobalt toxicity to describe this condition.
