The first trial involving a DePuy ASR hip lawsuit is currently underway in Los Angeles Superior Court in California. According to the Times, evidence disclosed in that proceeding include a Johnson & Johnson analysis from 2011 that estimated nearly 40% of ASR hip implants will fail within five years of surgery. Jurors also viewed the videotaped deposition of a DePuy compliance manager who testified that the company had used inadequate or incorrect standards in trying to assess the risks associated with the implant before it came to market. A DePuy engineer called to the stand told the jury that the company only tested the ASR’s performance on laboratory equipment at one angle of implantation, which the Plaintiff claims was inadequate. * (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County)

According to Bloomberg.com, a bioengineer called by the plaintiff as an expert witness testified that the ASR hip suffered from numerous design flaws, including the half-circle shape of the metal cup and the cup’s thin wall that caused it to fail at rates much higher than other implants. The witness, a professor from McGill University, stated that it was his opinion that any claimed benefits of the ASR were outweighed by its risks.**

The DePuy ASR is a metal-on-metal hip implant in which the ball and cup are made from a chromium-cobalt alloy. On January 17, 2013, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued new guidance for patients with such devices, after finding that the metal debris released as a result of friction between the ball and cup may cause damage to bone and/or soft tissue surrounding the implant and joint. Some of the metal ions released will enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body, where they may cause symptoms or illnesses elsewhere in the body. The FDA is now advising doctors to consider metal ion testing if patients are experiencing symptoms of hip implant failure.***
