Parker Waichman LLP Responds to Johnson & Johnson’s Decision to Discontinue Some of Its DePuy All-metal and Ceramic-on-metal Hip Implant Products
Date:5/17/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 17, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, notes that Johnson & Johnson (J&J)’s DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. has said in a May 16, 2013, statement that it will stop selling some of its metal-on-metal and ceramic-on-metal hip replacement products; specifically, the metal liners in the Ultamet Metal-on-Metal Articulation and the Complete Ceramic-on-Metal Acetabular Hip System will no longer be available worldwide after Aug. 31, according to a May 17, 2013, Bloomberg report, which added that the DePuy unit will stop selling related products in 2014.

The effort is meant to pare down the company’s metal hip implant product offering, it said in the release. The Pinnacle Cup all-metal hip implant will continue to be available, however.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s proposed regulatory change is another factor in the decision to discontinue Ultamet, in particular, the company added in its statement. The FDA announced in January plans to require all metal-on-metal hip implants cleared for release through the 510(k) process to now be approved through the Premarket Approval (PMA) process. Ultamet was cleared for sale through the 510(k) process in 2000, the company said. As the May 17, 2013, Bloomberg report noted, the 510(k) process is less extensive and allows manufacturers to compare their new offerings with similar products already on the market. The FDA now wants all-metal
