Unfortunately, this has not been the case for many patients who received either the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System, ASR XL Acetabular Cup, or Zimmer Durom Cup. Individuals who have filed lawsuits allege that the manufacturers of these defective devices knew their products were faulty yet continued to market them and allow doctors to implant them in patients.

Zimmer Hip Implant Recall
In 2008, Zimmer Holdings suspended all U.S. sales of an artificial hip implant component – known as the ‘Durom cup’ – due to an abnormally high rate of failure. Hip pain after surgery may be caused by a faulty, loose, or broken Zimmer Durom hip implant.
DePuy Issues Recall of ASR Hip Implant
In August 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics recalled their ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Between 2003 and 2009, more than 90,000 patients were implanted with these defective devices.
Defective Hip Implant Lawsuits
Lawsuits now being filed allege that the companies neglected to properly research their products and recall them when they should have. These product liability claims hold manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers liable for injuries that the defective hip replacement devices have caused.
