DePuy Recalled Hip Device Lawsuit Filed in Austin, Texas
Date:3/24/2011

AUSTIN, Texas, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomas Huxtable and his wife, Danielle, filed suit today against Johnson & Johnson, Inc. and DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. seeking compensation for injuries caused by the failure of Mr. Huxtable's DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System that has been recalled.  John David Hart of the Law Offices of John David Hart in Fort Worth, Texas, is the attorney representing Mr. and Mrs. Huxtable in the lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas in Austin, Texas.

"Thomas Huxtable is an active family man in his early 50s. He had the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System implanted in his right hip in October, 2008.  The device failed, leading to a revision surgery in less than two years.  This is unacceptable," said Mr. Hart.  "The device was not safe.  It was not effective.  Tom and Danielle should be fairly compensated for their injuries and losses caused by this failed, recalled device."

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a division of Johnson and Johnson, Inc., recalled its ASR XL Acetabular metal-on-metal hip replacement system on August 24, 2010. This recall came after data from a recent study indicated that the five year failure rate of this product is approximately 13%, or more than 1 out of every 8 patients. DePuy identified reasons for the failure of the hip replacement system as component loosening, component malalignment, infection, fracture of the bone, dislocation, metal sensitivity and pain. Additional complications from the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System may include increased metal ion levels in the blood, bone staining, necrosis, swelling, nerve damage, tissue damage and/or muscle damage.  This device was marketed by DePuy Orthopaedics as a high performance hip replacement system.
