OMG!! I just heard that over 100,000 Johnson and Johnson hip replacements were being recalled! This makes me so nervous--so many people I know have had hip replacements. Luckily I found a website that was extremely helpful:www.recalledhip.com
This video is about a warning letter issued by the FDA to Johnson and Johnson’s orthopedic division—DePuy Orthopaedics—concerning the Corail hip system and the TruMatch knee replacement technology. Did you know that DePuy/Johnson & Johnson have also been in the news for their recall of the ASR Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System (both used in hip replacements)? Data provided by British researchers found that 1 in 8 patients needed a second surgery to replace faulty ASR devices implanted in them. DePuy has offered to pay for the costs of testing and treatment associated with the recall. http://hipreplacementrecall.blogspot.com
This recall is making a lot of frenzy especially to those who received the defective implant. Not only that they affect directly the patient's quality of life, but also their loved ones. The situation is almost unimaginable considering that there were more than 93,000 installations made, and many of them will start to fail in the next few years. I've managed to read an article that talks about this. Source: http://www.rotlaw.com/lawsuits/depuy-asr-hip-replacement-lawsuit/why-will-you-need-a-depuy-asr-lawyer-now/
In addition to the knee replacement technology being questioned, the ASR hip replacement system of DePuy Orthopedics has also gained negative feedbacks from consumers. The hip device was found faulty upon release and now it is subject for DePuy Hip Replacement Recall.
I have heard about this already. Although I am more concern with the DePuy Pinnacle device which is also like the recalled ASRs although there are no recalled announced for it.DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit
That would truly be helpful if lawyers would the realize how have the victims needed help to file for hip lawsuit.
This article is truly helpful! Then again I get to know more about depuy asr hip recall.
Rest assured that asr hip recall is well handled by the lawyers.
I have heard about this already too. But still interested in reading more and more articles about hip class action.
Hey, I think depuy hip recall class action should be taken into consideration.
This video must have freaked out especially those who have undergone a hip implant surgery. My advice is that you should visit your doctor right away to assess whether you are experiencing complications. And if you really are experiencing symptoms of a hip failure, I suggest you visit a lawyer and discuss about DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit to learn more about your rights and whether you are entitled to a compensation. And to the responsible health authorities, you must do more clinical testings before releasing these hip implants for it really destroys life.
Thanks for the post. After total hip joint replacement surgery, patients often start physical therapy immediately! Total Shoulder Replacement Surgery
