DePuy ASR Hip Replacement Systems Recalled

The DePuy hip recall only involves the ASR Hip Replacement Systems, specifically the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems sold in between 2005 and 2009. The DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System was not approved for use in the US, so most Americans need only be concerned if they have a DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System. DePuy began phasing out the ASR line of hip replacement systems late last year.
