History

DePuy Orthopaedics brought the ASR and Pinnacle hip implants to the market with high expectations for success. However, the implants have proven faulty and the cause of serious injuries and side effects such as metallosis.
Three of DePuy’s 200 products have been linked to serious injuries due to the product’s faulty design. The ASR XL Acetabular System total hip replacement, the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System were all designed to provide a wider range of motion and flexibility for younger patients required hip replacements. The metal on metal system brought havoc to the company through lawsuits rather than decreasing failure rates. Due to the metal on metal contact, many patients experienced metallosis, dislocation, infection, and immobility.

Dangers

Due to the design of the product, the metal components are subject to earlier erosion as they rub against each other. This friction parts releases metal ions that are capable of causing either mild or severe reactions. Short term side effects include inflammation resulting in pain and decreased mobility. Long term effects such as cobalt poisoning can cause cognitive and cardiac impairment.

In 2013 Bloomberg, a joint company with Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay $2.5 billion to 7,500 of the ASR lawsuits.
