This recall is a very big deal. Here’s a little bit about what’s going on right now:
Early Failure Rate:
The DePuy ASR(TM) XL total hip replacement system is failing at a higher than average rate. Currently it’s 5 year failure rate is 12-13%, the industry standard is only 5%.
That means 1 in 8, of the 33,000 patients in the Untied States, are going to need a second revision surgery. Putting you out of work, in immense pain, and having to turn your life upside down again.
The metal on metal hip has been found to let off chromium and cobalt ions into your blood stream because of the friction between the cup and ball. These ions are showing up in patient blood tests and are causing problems in health.
Studies are still being conducted to determine the long term effects found when people have prolonged high levels of chromium and cobalt. Doctors are finding that the injuries because of this metallosis can be rather severe.
