DePuy ASR / Pinnacle Hip Implants

The ASR hip cup is a metal-on-metal ball and socket, large diameter hip resurfacing device used in hip surgeries.

DePuy, the company that manufactures the ASR hip cup, was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1998.

In addition to the DePuy ASR Acetabular hip replacement device, numerous hip replacement patients have complained of problems related to their DePuy Pinnacle Acetabular metal-on-metal hip replacement device. 

DePuy ASR Hip Implant Side-Effects:

The cause of the DePuy ASR Cup hip implant problem / failure issue is currently under investigation. 
 
Metal debris early in the surgical placement of this implant may cause inflammation and other issues, leading to damaged muscles and soft tissue, etc.

An expensive and painful surgery intended to last at least a decade often requires revision within two to three years.  This can be especially problematic for the elderly and others with various health issues that make such surgery difficult and risky.

Among the side-effects mentioned in the ASR hip cup revision reports are:

  • Implanted cup loosening or failing to bond
  • Metallosis: a condition of excessive metal debris.
  • ALVAL (Aseptic Lymphocyte Dominated Vasculitis Associated Lesion): an adverse tissue reaction to metal ions and particles.
  • Pseudotumour: a soft tissue mass that may be the result of a toxic reaction to an excess of particulate metal wear debris.
