Bone Erosion and Destruction

Bone Erosion and Destruction Caused by DePuy Hip Implant

Murrieta Lawyer for Defective ASR Hip Implants

DePuy ASR hip replacement implants manufactured after July, 2003, have been reported to cause serious injury in patients who have suffered bone erosion and destruction caused by defects in the component parts. The ASR hip replacement implant is designed for assembly in three parts, inserted into the femur and fused by bone and tissue growth. Because the parts are made of titanium, metal-on-metal contact between the components can result in an abrasion and misalignment that destroys and erodes nearby bone material and adhering tissues.

Why a DePuy Hip Replacement Recall?

The injuries that result from the bone erosion can result in permanent symptoms of persistent pain and immobility. DePuy Orthopedics admits liability* for the injuries caused by its defective medical product, but limits payment of damages to 'reasonable costs' associated with replacement surgery. The company admits no liability, however, for additional financial and physical damages resulting from surgical complications, medication injuries, loss of earnings and wages, physical therapy and pain and suffering.
