Injury Claims in DePuy Hip Implant Cases
Some of the symptoms of a failing DePuy ASR hip implant are:
- Loosening or detachment of the implant
- Dislocation of the implant components
- Fracture of the bone around the implant
The ASR Hip Replacement System gained approval for use in 2005 with complaints starting around 2007, where there were approximately 100. The number of reported DePuy hip replacement problems had doubled by 2008 and tripled by 2009. Major newspapers such as the New York Times has published multiple articles about the problems and potential for more widespread problems for persons with these implants, practically forecasting the DePuy hip implant recall.
