Lawsuits over the recent DePuy hip recall continue to mount, as thousands of people experience devastating pain and the need for additional surgeries. Concerns are also being raised over the toxic metal on metal parts of the implants, which can enter a patient's bloodstream and cause metal poisoning.
In August 2010, a DePuy ARS hip recall was issued after studies confirmed that the device has an unreasonably high rate of failure, requiring a painful revision surgery to remove and replace the device. The recall affects more than 93,000 DePuy hip implant patients worldwide.
Signs that there are problems with the hip replacement device include prolonged hip pain, difficulty walking, and swelling. Additional complications associated with metal poisoning including vision loss, muscle injury, and hearing loss.
