DePuy Recalled Hip Device Lawsuit Filed in East Texas
Date:3/18/2011

TYLER, Texas, March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Richard Dykes filed suit today against Johnson & Johnson, Inc. and DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. seeking compensation for injuries caused by the failure of the 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. Dykes in the suit filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas in Tyler, Texas.

On or about December 5, 2008, Mr. Dykes underwent hip replacement surgery and received an ASR XL Acetabular system with an AML femoral stem implanted in his left hip. Since the surgical implantation of the ASR XL Acetabular System in his left hip, Mr. Dykes has suffered symptoms including, but not limited to severe pain, problems sitting and standing, elevated levels of metal ions in his blood, and possible loosening.  Due to these complications, he may require a revision surgery in the future.

"The DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System has an unacceptable failure rate of more than one out of every eight," said attorney John David Hart.  "One of those who was injured by this dangerous product was Richard Dykes.  Now, he lives with pain every day and is facing the potential for revision surgery.  Medical devices like the ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System must be safe and effective for the health of every patient."

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.
