An estimated 200 Irish DePuy ASR hip implant recipients plan on filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the recalled device, DePuy Orthopaedics, and the parent company, Johnson &Johnson. The group's lawyer declared that the claimants involvedare all recipients of the recalled a DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip replacement device within the year 2003 and 2010.
The manufacturer issued a recall of the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR Acetabular Hip Implant System all over the world in August 2010. The issuance of the recall followed a report releasedby the National Joint Registry of England and Wales stating that 1 out of every 8 patients (12%-13%) who received the medical devices have to undergo necessary and costly corrective surgery only within five years of receiving the implant. Since the recall's issuance of the device, DePuy and Johnson & Johnson have been named as defendants in over 5,000 U.S. product liability lawsuits.
As per the journal's report, 3,500 Irish patients have been affected by the DePuy ASR hip replacement recall. Regulators in the U.K. have advised recipients of metal-on-metal hip implants to have annual blood tests to ensure that the implants are not causing dangerous amounts of toxic metal ions leeching their bloodstream.
The Irish patients determining a DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits involved men in their 30s and women in their 80s. The lawsuits' lawyer for the group stated that there are some clients who have already sufferedpainful revision surgery in order for their failed hip implant removed; others face thesame prospect in the future.
'It is very invasive surgery, which is much more difficult than the original,' the attorney told Journal. 'Patients lose more muscle, tissue and bone and end up with a greater limp than they previously had.' He added.
'The more time that passes, the more chance of metal shredding and the rate of revision surgery inevitably goes up,' explains the counsel for the group.
As of this reporting, DePuy pays for the expenses of blood tests, scans and revision surgeries of some patients.
Since the recall of DePuy ASR Hip implant, it is believed that the whole class of metal-on-metal hip implants could be threatening the health of their recipients. This results when the metal components
of the hip implant rub together leading to the device shedding microscopic metal shards into the surrounding tissue that eventually make their way into the patients' blood stream. This leads to metallosis, a condition characterized by swelling, muscle bone and tissue loss, and searing pain. As the metal ions leech into the blood stream, the recipient can acquire cobaltism. The condition causes a variety of long-term health problems, such as the possibility of cancer.
Last May, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) requested 21 companies marketing the all-metal hip replacement device to conduct post-market studies of their products in order to determine if the subject device are shedding dangerous amounts of metallic debris in the recipients' bloodstream.
In the U.S., DePuy ASR hip lawsuits have been consolidated in a multidistrict litigation in a Ohio federal court. Hundreds of pending lawsuits are still in the offing, nonetheless, against a metal-on-metal version of DePuy's Pinnacle hip implant, which plaintiffs allege is similar in design and causes the same complications as the ASR.
