The Arkansas DePuy ASR Hip Recall Attorneys at Arkansas Attorney Group are examining potential lawsuits on behalf of those who received a DePuy ASR hip implant that was recalled after thousands of people reported experiencing devastating pain and needing an additional hip surgery. The DePuy ASR hip recall was issued in August 2010 for an estimated 93,000 defective implants after it was confirmed that the hip failure rate of this device was unreasonably high and often required implant recipients to undergo another surgery to fix or replace the original hip implant device. Possible DePuy ASR hip implant lawsuits are being pursued for patients who suspect that they may have been implanted with the metal-on-metal hip device. DePuy Pinnacle hip replacements cases are also being reviewed for complications.

Problems with the DePuy ASR Hip System
The DePuy ASR Acetabular Cup Hip System is made up of metal-on-metal components used in traditional hip replacements in the U.S. It is thought that the DePuy metal hip implant has a design flaw that makes them difficult to implant properly at the correct angle and therefore is prone to fail. When the metal-on-metal hip replacement system is positioned incorrectly, it can cause small metal particles to get into the body and lead to inflammatory reactions, affecting the surrounding tissue of the hip joint and bone loss. This can result in hip complications severe enough to leave patients with lasting problems and requiring additional surgery to fix or remove the hip implant. DePuy ASR hip implant complications could include: Loosening and dislocating of the implant, severe and unexplained hip pain long after surgery, hip failure, additional revision surgeries.
