You may be entitled to compensation
On August 26, 2010, Johnson and Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, issued a voluntary recall of the DePuy ASR™ XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System.
It has never been an easy ride for DePuy with the ASR. There have been documented issues with these devices as early as clinical trials, yet somehow, some 93,000 devices were installed worldwide since 2003. The ASR Recall has brought to light on the power that manufacturers have to push devices onto the market.
Recalling a medical device is obviously not like recalling some part of a car or typical retail product. Patients have these devices implanted in to their bodies, and require invasive operations to have them updated and replaced.
Many patients are now being faced with the very real possibility that the hip they believed would support them longer than its competitors is not only failing prematurely, but has, in fact, caused irreparable damage.

Other potential hazards may include:
Loosening of the implant
The metal components of the implanted device may loosen from the bone in which it's implanted, causing abrasion to occur on the surrounding bone and joints.
Loosening of the joint
The cup and ball of the joint may loosen as a result of edge-loading or uneven wear, positioning, or for no immediately identifiable cause.
Beyond simply loosening, the ball may become misaligned from or completely pulled out of the cup. Tendons may be torn or ruptured as a result.
What are the Risks of the Depuy ASR Hip Resurfacer?
An increased fracture rate of the femur is considered one of the factors that held the ASR resurfacing device back from achieving FDA approval.
Metal debris injuries
Metallosis, Also known as, "metal poisoning," describes the injures caused by metal debris from these metal-on-metal hip implants.
Infection may arise from a variety of causes.
