DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. recently announced the recall of its ASR Hip Replacement Systems
, which have been implanted in 93,000 persons worldwide. The DePuy hip recall came as a result of a higher than acceptable rate of failure requiring another hip replacement within 5 years, but additional complications have now come to light as a result of initial findings by DePuy hip recall lawyers

Based upon new information, data DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. cited in its hip recall notice, over 11,500 persons with a DePuy ASR system will suffer a failure requiring that implant to be removed and replaced with another hip implant.
