Dangerous Products - Defective Pain Pumps and PAGCL

Dangerous Products - Defective Hip Implants

Depuy Orthopedics has issued a recall on its ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR XL Acetabular System. This recall comes after years of published reports, studies and data indicating that the device is defective and failing in patients. The defective ASR hip systems have been implanted in a total of about 93,000 patients. The recall was issued because of the alarming number of complaints and high revision surgery rate for the devices. DePuy statistics show that approximately 12% of patients who had received the ASR resurfacing device and 13% of patients who had received the ASR total hip replacement needed to have a revision surgery. Often times these patients undergo a painful revision surgery that would not be necessary but for the defective DePuy hip systems. Additionally, data suggests that many of these hips are experiencing excessive wear along the edge of the cup and that this is causing large amounts of metal debris to show up in the blood of individuals who have received these hips. If you or a loved one are having problems after a hip implant surgery, contact us immediately for a free case evaluation.

Recent studies have linked the use of post-operative, intra-articular high volume shoulder pain pumps following arthroscopic shoulder surgery to a rare, life-altering condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis.

 

If you or a loved one have developed cartilage damage or Post-arthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL) following arthroscopic surgery, you should contact us immediately for a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to compensation.

Medical providers are supposed to offer us care and support during our most critical moments.

When these medical professionals fall below this standard of care, they may be guilty of medical malpractice. Moore Landrey L.L.P. represents clients who have been injured due to the negligent or wrongful actions of a medical provider.

The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult losses we each face in life. The trauma is even more tragic when the death was unnecessarily caused by someone else's wrongdoing. Texas law provides for the recovery of damages by the surviving family where a loved one was killed because of another person's fault. Federal admiralty law also provides the family with damage recovery for deaths on navigable waters. Wrongful death claims may be made for practically every type of accident.
