Few Depuy Hip Implant Patients Seeking Legal Council
WASHINGTON, DC, – Early data from the new National Hip Replacement Registry (http://www.HipRecallRegistry.com) indicates that less than 10% of Depuy hip implant patients are requesting to speak to an Attorney concerning the Depuy Hip Recall after being contacted by their Surgeon . Depuy is currently offering to cover costs for testing, as well as, for a hip revision surgery, if required, due to the high rate of failure which led to the ASR hip recall.
Initial data also indicates that more the 40% of Depuy hip replacement patients have still not been contacted by their Surgeons concerning the Hip Recall . With an estimated 93,000 Depuy hip implants patients effected by the hip recall, this would indicate that tens of thousands are still not aware of the Depuy ASR hip recall and may be at risk. Reports indicate that Depuy did not maintain a list of patients who received their ASR Hip implant and are unable to warn its customers directly. DePuy’s failure to keep accurate records puts the burden on the implant patient to determine if they received a defective hip replacement.
All Hip implant patients regardless of the hip implant manufacture or if they have already been contacted by their Surgeon are urged to register with the National Hip Replacement Registry. Registering would allow for automated communications and information concerning health-related issues and news detailing all hip warnings and recalls that may effect these patients.
National Hip Replacement Registry can be found at http://www.HipRecallRegistry.com and was created to better communicate critical information regarding recall and warnings both mandatory and voluntary that are issued by the FDA , Hip Manufactures and legal experts. Data from the Hip recall Registry is not guaranteed to be accurate as the sample size is very limited. The Hip Recall Registry is not associated with any Hip Manufacture or Government Agency.
