DePuy Orthopedics, a division of Johnson and Johnson, has issued a WORLDWIDE RECALL of its “metal-on-metal” ASR XL Acetabular System for Total Hip Replacement. DePuy issued this recall after data revealed that this device failed in a number of patients. Over time, these “metal-on-metal” hip implants can shed particles into the patient causing serious, painful reactions, often leading to additional hip replacement surgery.
If you, a family member or friend have had a hip replaced with this device and have experienced any unusual side effects, contact your doctor’s office or hospital about your injury.
