Depuy Hip Patients Are Urged to Register
Washington, DC, December 3, 2010 -- The National Hip Recall Registry is urging all Depuy ASR Hip replacement patients to register their implants online. The Hip Recall Registry launch was expedited as the National outcry grows concerning the lack of a central database to reach the 93,000 patients who received the Depuy ASR Hip replacement and are at risk.
A central registry to reach all implant patients is especially important, as while Depuy is indicating that only 12% of patients who have the Depuy ASR Implant will need Hip replacement surgery, some health experts are estimating that 100% of the hip implants will fail in the next 15 years.
Once patients enter their anonymous information concerning their hip implant, such as manufacture, model and outcome into the form available on www.HipRecallRegistry.com they will automatically be kept abreast of important issues that may arise concerning their Depuy hip implant and what options might be available to them.
The National Hip Recall Registry can be found at www.HipRecallRegistry.com and was created to better communicate critical information regarding recall and warning both mandatory and voluntary. The Hip Recall Registry is not associated with any Hip Manufacture or Government Agency.
