The side effects of defective hip implants may result in injury lawsuits being filed by affected patients. If you have received a defective hip implant, contact a defective product attorney today.

Consumers are sometimes advised by their physicians to replace an injured hip with an artificial hip implant, of which DePuy Orthopaedics’ hip implants are one of the most popular. Consumers who opt for this method of treatment typically do so under the impression that the medical device will repair the injury or relieve their pain without causing them any unnecessary harm. Unfortunately, the mounting number of defective hip implants on the market today has raised serious concerns about the safety of these medical devices and the adverse side effects defective hip implants may impose upon patients. As the FDA continues to issue recalls for defective hip implants, the public is being made aware of the adverse side effects recipients of defective hip implants may be exposed to. If you received a hip implant and have since suffered from a serious side effect, contact a defective product attorney for legal help.

FDA Recalls for Defective Hip Implants

Most issues with hip implants involve problems with the way the medical device was designed or manufactured. Recent hip implant recalls have included:

 

  • DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System
  • DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System
  • Stryker Trident PSL
  • Stryker Trident Hemispherical Acetabular Cup
  • Zimmer Durom Cup

 

Although there have been several FDA recalls issued for defective hip implants, hip implants that haven’t yet been recalled may also fail and cause serious injury to patients.

 

 

Adverse Side Effects of Defective Hip Implants

Thousands of hip implants have been recalled in recent years because of high failure rates. While many patients have already experienced one or more adverse side effects of a defective hip implant, thousands more have been implanted with the potentially dangerous devices and still don’t know it. Some of the most serious injuries that have been reported by defective hip implant recipients include dislocation of the implant, hip fractures, and loosening of the implant. In most cases, these side effects require a second surgery, called a revision surgery, in order to repair the problem or to replace the implant completely. Unfortunately, the defective hip implant injuries some patients suffer may be even more serious than the injury that warranted implantation of an artificial hip in the first place. Common symptoms of failing hip implants include:

 

  • Swelling of the affected area
  • Severe pain in the groin or hip joint
  • Difficulty walking or standing
  • Clicking, grinding or popping sound

You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, which you can collect by filing an injury lawsuit against the manufacturing company.
