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 is 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 globally in July 2003. In Thailand, the ASR XL Acetabular Hip System became commercially available in June 2005 while the ASR Hip Resurfacing System became commercially available in July 2005. If you had your hip surgery in Thailand prior to June 2005 for the ASR XL Acetabular Hip System or to July 2005 for the ASR Hip Resurfacing System, the hip you received is not subject to the ASR recall.
