San Diego Man Describes DePuy ASR Hip Implant Misery

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A San Diego man who underwent hip replacement with the now-recalled DePuy ASR hip replacement system, told San Diego News/10 News that within three years of implantation, he suffered from painful swelling and an array of other adverse reactions. “It’s been a nightmare,” said Tony Stauffer, 62, wrote 10 News.

NewsInferno has been covering the issue and explained that last year, DePuy, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, recalled its ASR Hip Resurfacing and ASR Acetabular systems when the National Joint Registry of England and Wales revealed that 1 of every 8 patients—12-13%—implanted with the defective devices needed painful and complicated revision surgery within five years of the original implant, a figure much higher than usual. A total of 93,000 ASR hip implants have been implanted in patients worldwide.

Stauffer’s adverse reactions have to do with both the faulty construction of his hip device and that it is a metal-on-metal device known to shed metal shavings that many allege have led to cobalt and chromium poisoning. “My hair started to fall out …. My fingernails became brittle. I got skin rashes,” said 10 News, which also discussed Stauffer’s inflamed joints and damaged muscles, other reactions to poisoning with the heavy metals.

“My orthopedic surgeon’s first words [were], ‘We have to get that out of there,’” said Stauffer. “I felt angry I had to go though this again,” reported 10 News.

Because of a fast-tracking process in place with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), medical devices introduced to the market that are similar in design to existing products need not undergo the more rigorous FDA approval process and can be fast-tracked without human and other testing.

“That is unbelievable,” said Stauffer, who underwent surgical removal of the device and reimplantation with another device earlier this year, wrote 10 News. “The message I want to send is one of responsibility,” he said. “I suffer the consequences of them being in a hurry,” he added, News 10 reported.
