5 Recalls Patients Should Know About
Metal-on-metal hip attorneys note the following five current or former hip replacement recalls and device makers:
- Zimmer – Zimmer issued a recall of the Durom Cup, sometimes also known as the Durom Acetabular Component. The recall was eventually lifted, although claims have still been brought against the company.
- Wright Medical Technology – Wright issued a recall for its entire Conserve line of hip implants. This recall encompasses numerous metal-on-metal hip replacement systems.
- Stryker Orthopaedics – The ABG II and Rejuvenate hip replacement systems by Stryker are noteworthy for their interlocking neck and stem components. Reported corrosion and fretting on these devices led to a recall.
- Smith & Nephew – Smith & Nephew issued a recall for the R3 Acetabular metal liner, a component made of high carbide cobalt chrome.
- DePuy Orthopaedics – The recall issued by DePuy Orthopaedics involved the entire ASR line of products. Side effects reported with these products include allergic reactions and cobalt poisoning.

Medical device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If they breach this duty, they can be held liable if a patient is injured. Patients who suffer complications after hip replacement surgery may be entitled to compensation for their injuries, including:
- Past and future medical expenses
