ASR™ Hip Replacement Recall Media Guide | DePuy.com
Reason for ASR Hip Recall
In August 2010, DePuy issued a voluntary recall of the ASR Hip Systme after receiving new information from the National Joint Registry for England and Wales as part of it's ongoing surveillance of post-market data concerning the ASR Hip System. After reviewing this data, DePuy decided it was in the best interests of patients to voluntarily recall the ASR Hip System.
Since the recall decision was made, DePuy has worked to provide patients and surgeons with the information and support they need, and DePuy's efforts to support ASR patients and their surgeons remain a top priority.
DePuy is committed to working with patients and the health insurers to address medical costs directly assocaited with the recall. DePuy, through Broadspire, will also address recall-related patient out-of-pocket expenses, such as co-pays, deductible expenses, lost wages and travel costs. ASR patients should contact the ASR Help Line at 1-888-627-2677 for assistance.
