DePuy recalled its ASR XL Acetabular System metal-on-metal hip implants. DePuy has also pledged to reimburse patients who received the defective medical device for a removal and replacement surgery known as a hip revision, as well as other medical treatments.
But what does this mean for you? How many other people are affected, and what adverse health effects can a failed artificial hip joint made from potentially poisonous chromium and cobalt cause? How did a device that kept neither of its promises to last longer and work more efficiently than other hip implants even reach the U.S. market?
Get the answers to those questions, as well as information on how you can protect your medical and legal rights as a person injured by a defective and recalled medical device, by reading our free guide to the DePuy hip recall.
