DePuy Orthopaedics Voluntarily Recalls ASR™ Hip System
Date:8/26/2010

providing hospitals, surgeons and patients with comprehensive information about the recall to help them determine next steps. Patients and health care professionals with questions related to this recall should visit depuy.com.  As of August 27, patients in the U.S. and Canada can contact DePuy by calling 888-627-2677 Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST.  Patients in other countries can place a collect call to the U.S. at +1 813-287-1651 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The ASR device is part of a class of large diameter, monoblock hip resurfacing and replacement devices often selected by surgeons for younger patients who may benefit from a more stable device that can reduce the chances of dislocation after surgery.  The DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System was introduced in 2003 and is only approved for use outside the U.S.  The ASR™ XL Acetabular System was first launched in 2004 and has been available worldwide. 

Very few devices remain on the worldwide market.  DePuy decided in 2009 that it would be discontinuing the ASR System as a result of declining demand and the intention to focus on the development of next generation hip replacement and resurfacing technologies that best meet the needs of surgeons and patients.

DePuy has notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory agencies globally of the voluntary recall.
