Have you or a loved one received a DePuy Pinnacle ASR hip implant? Did this hip implant result in failure, metallosis, infection, dislocation or immobility? You may be entitled to compensation.
If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury from a DePuy Pinnacle ASR hip implant, you may be eligible to file a hip implant lawsuit. The personal injury lawyers at the Firm are currently investigating DePuy Pinnacle ASR hip implant failures resulting in injury, health problems and/or revision surgeries.
The DePuy Hip Replacement System is manufactured by the DePuy Orthopaedics unit of Johnson & Johnson and was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000. It is ball and socket design featuring multiple types of surface designs, including ceramic-onpolyethylene, ceramic-on-ceramic and metal-on-metal.1
The DePuy ASR metal-on-metal model has created dangerous conditions for many recipients, often resulting in the need for revision surgery. The patient revision surgery rate is double that of the industry average. At least 12 to 13 percent of patients who received the DePuy ASR hip implant devices have required a second surgery. Because of this, Johnson & Johnson issued a voluntary recall of its ASR EL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System in August 2010.2
Similar complaints have been issued by patients who received the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement. This model is slightly different from the ASR system, as it features a cup and a liner instead of one solid piece of metal. A Pinnacle recall has not been issued, but some patients are experiencing problems and may also have legal options.
