Important Information About the ASR Hip System Recall

last updated 6 December 2010

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 in July 2003 globally, and in March 2006 in Malaysia. If you had your hip surgery prior to March 2006 in Malaysia, the hip you received is not subject to the ASR recall.
