Depuy Hip Recall Patients Sought
The Hip Recall Registry, www.HipRecallRegistry.com is currently seeking to locate hip implant and Hip Replacement patients who have been notified by their Surgeons or Hospital that they have received a Depuy Hip replacement during their hip replacement surgery.
The recalled Depuy hip replacements appear to be failing at higher then expected rates and approximately 1 in 8 patients will require a second surgery to replace the defective hip implant. In the US 250,000 patients per year undergo a hip replacement, with the vast majority experiencing a positive outcome. But, in the last several years there have been hip implant recalls and warnings issued not just for the Depuy hip implant but for those manufactured by Stryker Corp and Zimmer Inc.
If you have received a hip implant regardless of the manufacture you are urged to voluntarily register with the Hip Recall Registry, www.hiprecallregistry.com. Registration will allow us to automatically contact you with information concerning warnings, recalls and legal issues that may affect you in regards to your hip replacement.
Currently issues exist with the following hip replacement devices: Depuy Orthopedicís ASR XL Acetabular System, ASR Hip Resurfacing System, Zimmer Inc.ís Durom Replacement Acetabular Component , Zimmer Durom Cup, Stryker Corporationís Trident PSL and Hemispherical Acetabular Cups.
This National Hip Replacement Registry can be found at http://www.HipRecallRegistry.com and was created to better communicate critical information regarding hip replacement recalls and warnings. The Hip Recall Registry is not associated with any Hip Manufacture or Government Agency. All hip replacement patients regardless of if their hip is currently subject to a recall or not are urged to registry.
