DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit Update

DePuy ASR lawsuit claims stemming from the 2010 DePuy hip recall continue to move forward in courts throughout the country . According to documents filed in California’s San Francisco Superior Court on April 25th, a Plaintiff who had been seeking an expedited trial of her DePuy hip lawsuit is voluntarily seeking dismissal of the case. (Tilman v. DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., et al., No. CGC11508806; Calif. Super. Ct., San Francisco).

This news is particularly interesting as when a case is voluntarily dismissed it is often an indication that the parties have come to an agreement. 

DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits Lawyers Filing DePuy Lawsuits

Court records indicate that there are more than 10,000 DePuy ASR hip lawsuits currently pending in courts throughout the U.S. The DePuy hip recall was announced after the metal-on-metal hip implants were found to be failing in an unacceptably high number of patients. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is now reviewing the safety of all metal hip implants, over fears that the devices can shed dangerous amounts of metal debris into patient’s bodies, leading to premature failure of the hips and other serious complications. In January, the agency proposed a new regulation that would make such devices ineligible for the agency’s 510(k) clearance process, which allowed all-metal hips like the ASR hip to gain FDA approval without first undergoing human clinical trials. The FDA also advised doctors to test metal hip implant patients for elevated metal ion levels if they present with symptoms of a failing hip implant.*

The majority of DePuy hip lawsuits have been filed in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio. Court records indicate that the first trials in that litigation will begin this September. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197) Two lawsuits have already gone to trial at the state level, one of which ended with a California Superior Court jury awarding the Plaintiff more than $8 million in damages. (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County) However, the jury hearing a second trial in Illinois state court found for DePuy. (Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County) According to an April 16th report from The New York Times, documents submitted as evidence in both of those trials indicated that Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit knew that the ASR was flawed years before the recall was announced, but did not disclose this information to the public or the medical community.**

Earlier this month, DePuy Orthopaedics announced it would end sales of metal-on-metal hip implants, citing recent FDA actions and decreased demand for the products, according to the New York Times. The sales suspension includes a metal-on-metal version of the company’s DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement system, which is also the subject of lawsuits.

If you have a faulty DePuy and have had revision surgery or have been told you need revision surgery call and speak to a hip replacement lawyer today.

Stryker has recalled a number of hip replacements including: Stryker Rejuvinate, Stryker ABG II and the Trident. Lawsuits are being filed against Stryker for implant failure of all these devices

Stryker recalled its Trident artificial hip in 2007 due to device failures in recipients. Previous plaintiffs have cited symptoms consistent with other defective metal-on-metal hip implants, along with one defect that was unique to the Trident device: Many recipients claimed of hearing a loud squeaking noise coming from their hip region after receiving this particular model.

Stryker recalls on the Rejuvinate and ABG II will effect thousands and the lawsuits are coming in in mass. The FDA has taken another look and is proposing changes to regulations that allowed two Stryker Corp. recalled hip implant systems to be deemed safe. But the move does little for the tens of thousands of patients already implanted with the faulty medical devices. The DePuy Pinnacle and ASR are other failed recalled hip replacements that have injured thousands of victims.  The FDA proposed changes for the 510(k) Premarket Notification Process for  the approval of metal-on-metal hip implants like those manufactured by Stryker and DePuy come very late for seniors burdened with painful revision surgeries.

In July 2012, after injured patients filed more than 60 adverse event reports with the FDA, Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its ABG II and Rejuvenate hip implant systems. Post-market surveillance revealed that a metal-on-metal junction in these devices can shed metal debris, causing pain and tissue damage that may require a revision surgery. Can the FDA actually step up to the plate and protect our citizens?

The FDA’s most recent proposal aims to standardize the requirements for how the agency accepts data, regardless of the submission or application type. The new regulation will require 510(k) submissions to be scrutinized by an institutional review board (IRB), a must for PMA applications.

The proposal for better practices in approval of medical devices like hip implants would become effective 180 days after publication, and the proposal to shift from 510(k) to PMA for metal hips would become effective 90 days after publication. Lawyers for Stryker and Depuy hip replacements are filing lawsuits for failed devices.

A number of victims have chosen  file a Stryker hip replacement lawsuit lafter experiencing serious complications linked to the devices, and a consolidation of a number of lawsuits has taken place.

The Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Recall for metal toxicity was a surprise to many patients and doctors because it is not a metal on metal hip. In fact, many patients selected this hip to avoid the metallosis problem that has been in the news for the last two years since the DePuy ASR metal on metal recall in August of 2010.

The Stryker Rejuvenate hip is made with a ceramic ball and a polyethylene liner in the acetabular cup. The recalled DePuy ASR and the recalled Smith & Nephew R3 hips both have a metal ball and a metal cup which is called a metal on metal articulation. The problem with the metal on metal hips is that the metal on metal interface generates metallic debris that is toxic to the tissues in the hip compartment causing fluid buildup, tissue damage, and failure of the implant.

A lawsuit claiming that Stryker Corporation was negligent and did not adequately warn patients about the risks associated with its Trident hip replacement system was filed in the Superior Court of the State of Indiana for the County of Marion by plaintiff Darlene A. Gray. On the 5th of September, 2012, the suit was removed under federal diversity jurisdiction. The lawsuit claims that plaintiff Gray had the Trident hip system implanted after suffering from avascular necrosis of the right hip for a number of years, however, the device failed much earlier than what would be reasonably expected, she was forced to undergo Stryker revision surgery in order to correct complications she was experiencing as a result of her implant.
Recall issued over parts

Stryker issued a recall of two component hip parts related to their Trident hip replacement system in 2008, as a number of patients came forward with assertions of pain related to their Trident hip implants. In addition, squeaking and popping sounds and sensations were reported by a number of patients, which could be embarrassing as well as indicative of other complications associated with the products. Some patients reported even more serious complications, including implant failure and bone fractures. A number of these patients had to undergo revision surgery in order to correct them.

The plaintiff is seeking compensation based on damages associated with medical expenses and pain and suffering that she has experienced as a result of her use of the allegedly defective product. She is making claims of negligence and defective product claims against Stryker Orthopedics.
Lawsuits consolidated in New Jersey

A number of patients have chosen to go ahead with Stryker hip litigation after experiencing serious complications linked to the devices, and a consolidation of a number of lawsuits has taken place. Some lawsuits have been consolidated in the New Jersey Superior Court of Atlantic County and are being presided over by Judge Carol Higbee.

 GranuFlo recall announced causing sudden heart attacks and death. GranuFlo lawyers filing lawsuits.

FDA Issues GranuFlo Recall
Elise Kramer | September 13th, 2012 | Posted in GranuFlo Lawsuits, Injury Lawsuit News

The Food and Drug Administration issued a recall of the dialysis products GranuFlo and NaturaLyte on the 29th of March, 2012, after a memo from drug maker Fresenius Medical Care was leaked to the public. These products are used during hemodialysis in order to remove toxins from the bloodstream of a patient whose kidneys are not functioning properly; however, GranuFlo and NaturaLyte have been linked to an increased risk of heart attack and sudden death. A number of patients who have experienced these side effects or whose loved ones have experienced them have filed suit against the drug manufacturer in the hopes of gaining compensation for the injuries.
Dangerous side effects linked to products

GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are similar products which were both designed to reduce the build-up of acid in the blood and to utilize bicarbonate in order to neutralize acids. However, these products are different from their competitors in that they use greater concentrations of bicarbonate, which can lead to serious health issues especially if doctors miscalculate the proper and safe dosage. Fatal overdoses, which can cause sudden death, and heart attacks are the most serious side effects of this product.

Fresenius Medical Care published an internal memo on the 4th of November, 2011, regarding risks associated with their product. A reported 941 patients had suffered heart attacks linked to the use of these products, and the memo detailed these “troubling findings”. Medical staff were informed that the problem needed to be “addressed urgently.” However, no contact was made with the Food and Drug Administration about these concerns, and no public warning was issued to patients at risk for GranuFlo related side effects. The memo was leaked to the Food and Drug Administration, which prompted a recall of the products.
Recall leads to individual lawsuits

Patients alerted to the recall suddenly may have been able to connect adverse health events that they had experienced to the use of GranuFlo, and many have hired GranuFlo attorneys in an effort to seek compensation that could help cover injury-related costs they have accumulated.

The news regarding the Stryker hip replacement is out. Stryker is faced with mounting lawsuits

New Jersey Stryker Hip Replacement Claims

many new nationwide  lawsuits were filed in New Jersey Superior Court, claiming that each of the plaintiffs received a Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement, involving a modular femoral neck stem designed to allow the surgeon to customize the length of the component.

The lawsuits claim that the Stryker  design defects caused the hip replacements to loosen and move out of position, requiring people to undergo revision surgery.

What is The  Problem with Stryker Rejuvenate?

The Stryker Rejuvenate consists of a metal neck that fits inside of a metal stem to allow the implant to be customized for certain aspects of a patient’s anatomy and hip biomechanics.

In July 2012, a Stryker Rejuvenate recall was issued for the modular-neck hip stem components, due to a risk of corrosion at the modular neck junction. The design has been associated with metallosis problems where metal debris may be released into the body as the metal parts grind against each other, leading to hip pain, swelling, local tissue reactions and early failure of the entire hip replacement.

Stryker Lawyers Filing Stryker Rejuvenate Lawsuits

These lawsuits claim that  Stryker is liable for negligent design and manufacturing of the Stryker Rejuvenate system. Stryker has confirmed that the modular neck stem suffered from loosening, corrosion and fretting, similar to problems seen with metal-on-metal hip replacement systems.

The Stryker Hip Replacements Cause:

  • pseudotumors, tissue necrosis,
  • muscle loss,
  • bone loss around the implants,
  • metal poisoning or metallosis.
