Irish DePuy ASR Hip Implant Patients Plan Lawsuit

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A group of Irish DePuy ASR hip implant patients are planning a lawsuit over their ongoing health issues related to the faulty medical implants. DePuy is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

The lawsuit is being filed on behalf of more than 200 patients fitted with defective DePuy hip implants from 2003 to 2010, said TheJournal.ie. The solicitor handling the case is hoping Ireland’s High Court will begin hearing cases in the next 12-18 months. Some 3,500 patients in Ireland have been fitted with the faulty devices, 193 revision surgeries have been completed and another 100 revision surgeries have been scheduled.

TheJournal.ie. pointed out that, last month, The New York Times wrote about a defective DePuy hip marketed in Europe after being rejected by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009. Some 93,000 DePuy devices were sent to Europe and India after clinical trials in the U.S. revealed higher-than-expected failure rates, said TheJournal.ie. Two DePuy devices were recalled in August 2010 in the U.S.

The metal-on-metal devices have been found to shed metal shards into the body, leaving bone, nerves, and tissue damaged and leading to—along with early failure issues—patients being forced to undergo painful and complex revision surgery. In some cases, patients are left with blood poisoning and adverse—some, long-term—health problems.

This site has long reported about the dangers posed by metal-on-metal hip implants, explaining that shedding of microscopic metal shards into the surrounding tissue can cause area reactions that destroy muscle and bone and lead to long-term disability. Some studies reveal that metal ions can leach into the bloodstream, spreading and poisoning organs in the body. Preliminary research, conducted by researchers at the University of Bristol in the U.K., also revealed that patients fitted with all-metal hip implants may be at risk of experiencing genetic changes to the bladder cells, a possible precursor to cancer, and possibly to bladder cancer itself.

The plaintiffs’ attorney also explained that revision surgery is very invasive and more difficult than the original surgery, with patients losing even more muscle, tissue, and bone, and typically walking with an increased limp. Although the DePuy implants have been found to fail prematurely at a rate of 12-13%, some U.K research has found that rate to be much higher, at 50%, said TheJournal.ie.
