  4. 4. In December 2009, DePuy pulled the devices off ofthe Australian market. The global recall of theseproducts were announced in August 2010. TheFood and Drug Administration (FDA) have beenreceiving a number of complaints from DePuyclients between 2008 and the time of its recallannouncement. Many of these clients need asecond hip replacement surgery.
  5. 5. The Director of the National Joint ReplacementRegistry in Australia, Dr. Stephen Graves, says “Itis a complete untruth that DePuy did not havereason to withdraw the ASR before now; we havebeen telling them since 2007, but they allowed itto be used on thousands of people.”
  6. 6. Johnson and Johnson have been charged withnumerous lawsuits by their clients, legalspecialists say. They were the ones victimized byDePuy failures and defects like displacements,fractures and loosening.
  7. 7. The symptoms of a defective hip implant are:• Swelling• Pain bearing weight• Pain when rising from a seated position• Pain while walking• Pain on the thigh or groin area• Pain on the hip area
  8. 8. It extreme cases, these hip devices maycompletely fail, resulting in more severe healthcomplication. This occur when:• the device is not attached to the bonecorrectly;• the unit is dislocated and misaligned;• the bone around the implant is fractured.
  9. 9. In addition, malfunctioning hip devices maycreate an accumulation of toxic metal into thepatient’s bloodstream. The body tissues maypossibly develop pseudotumors.
  10. 10. With lawsuits piling up worldwide, DePuy shouldduly address the hip replacement problemsencountered by its clients. It should circulate awide range of information regardingmalfunctioning hip replacement symptoms sothat clients would be provided with due medicalattention. Although the earlier stated hipreplacement symptoms do not occur, one shouldstill see a health care expert. Hip replacementproblems should be dealt immediately so as toprevent much adverse complications.
