The Johnson & Johnson DePuy Hip Replacement Implant causes dangerous side effects
The DePuy metal on metal hip implant from Johnson & Johnson contained a design flaw that made it difficult for the DePuy ASR implant to be placed correctly in the patient’s body. This caused the DePuy hip replacement implants to have a high rate of incorrect installation making them prone to failure. When a metal on metal hip implant such as the DePuy ASR hip replacement implant is improperly positioned it can cause particles of metal to release and cause inflammation, tissue damage, and loss of bone in the surrounding hip joint.
Complications from a defective DePuy ASR Hip Replacement Implant include
- Hip Pain
