Defective Hip Replacements

Several hip replacement manufacturers have recalled certain models of their hip devices as defective. If you received one of these hips and have suffered complications from it, you have the right to pursue legal action against the company that made your device.

Recalled hip replacements include these models, among others:

  • DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System
  • DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System
  • DePuy Pinnacle
  • Stryker ABG II
  • Stryker Rejuvenate

The above devices cause complications at a higher than normal rate, and patients who have received them often required a second surgery in order to correct the problems caused by the original hip implant. In some cases, the complications caused by the first device were so severe as to require a two-stage revision surgery, extensive physical therapy, and an extended recovery period. This is not normal or acceptable. If you or someone you know has been subjected to this, you have the right to pursue legal action with an attorney by your side.

Complications caused by these devices include:

  • Metallosis (release of metallic debris from the device, specifically Cobalt and/or Chromium)
  • Necrosis (tissue cell death)
  • Osteolysis (bone cell death)
  • Pseudotumor formation in the area of the device
  • Persistent infection
  • Extreme pain continuing beyond normal recovery period
  • Swelling
  • Loosening of the device
  • Femur fracture
  • Repeated dislocation of the hip device
  • Limited range of motion of the device
  • Squeaking, clicking or popping of the device
  • Problems that necessitate a second (revision) surgery
