ASR Hip Replacement System
In 2010, the DePuy company recalled a widely used hip implant system called the ASR XL Acetabular System as people who received the implant were suffering serious blood-related ailments. At the law offices of Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, our Delaware defective ASR hip replacement attorneys can help you evaluate your options and get the compensation you deserve for your defective hip implant.
Whether you exhibit the symptoms of hip replacement failure, or you know that you received an ASR XL implant and you are concerned about possible complications, do not wait to talk to a lawyer and start exploring your options. With an extensive products liability personal injury practice, we understand the complex factors that enter these cases, and we can help you do everything possible to protect your rights.
DePuy recalled the ASR XL Acetabular System, because there was a problem with the coating on the implant. They found that the metal would deteriorate and get into the blood stream, causing metallosis. However, that is not the only potential problem with this hip replacement. It can also cause the following problems:
- Pain and discomfort
- Implant movement
With a 12 to 15 percent failure rate on all hip surgeries, the last thing you want to do is increase the chances of failed hip replacement by using a faulty product. Whether your implant was not positioned correctly or disintegration has caused metallosis, we are not afraid to take on negligent manufacturers in order to protect you rights.Contact Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty
