Important Information About the ASR Hip System Recall
DePuy issued a voluntary recall of its ASR™ XL Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System in August 2010. We understand that the ASR Hip System recall has been concerning for patients, their family members and surgeons. Since the recall decision was made, DePuy has worked to provide patients and surgeons with the information and support they need. These systems first became commercially available in July 2003 globally, and were authorized for sale in Canada in November, 2005 and January, 2006 (Health Canada, Licenses # 69823 and # 70004 ). If you had your hip surgery prior to July 2003, the hip you received is not subject to the ASR recall.
