Orthopaedics, Inc., a division of Johnson and Johnson instituted a recall of DePuy Hip Replacement in the year 2010. DePuy recalled its ASR XL Acetabular metal-on-metal hip replacement system on August 24, 2010, owing to a study which indicated that the five year failure rate of this product was approximately 13%, which implied that 1 in every 8 patients, who had undergone this surgery, might have to undergo a “revision” surgery again. Even the replacement of defective device would not have assured that the body would be free from the dangerous and deadly fragments that the implant system would have left.
