Manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, the ASR XL™ Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System products were some of the most common hip replacement kits on the market. Owned by Johnson & Johnson, one of the largest medical device companies in the industry, these systems were trusted by patients and health care providers across the United States.
There is reason to believe that the hip replacement manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, was aware of the potential risk posed by the devices. It is suspected that the company knew well in advance of any recalls and intentionally did not issue safety information or warnings, but rather stalled on recall efforts.
While DePuy hip systems are some of the most common defective hip systems, other manufacturers, such as Smith & Nephew, Zimmer, Stryker and Wright, also released flawed hip replacement products to the market.
