If you are one of the 93,000 DePuy hip implant patients, you probably are pretty uspet right now. Many people want to know what is causing these DePuy implants to fail?

Well, the make, DePuy Orthopaedics is keeping this a secret. Hopefully, the maker will not be to keep the truth from coming out for long. Because of the recall lawsuits the make will have to answer question about the why there was a hip recall. Hopefully, the patients will finally learn the truth about the DePuy recall.

Lawyers will also hire experts who will get a chance to look at the engineering data and specification to determine what is causing the DePuy defect that has so dramatically affected so many hip recall patients. Until then, everyone will only speculate about the true nature of the hip implant defect.

Ultimately, as the litigation progresses, New Jersey and Philadelphia DePuy Hip Recall lawyers will get more information about why this defect occurred and how it will affect the entire 93,000 DePuy hip implant patients. More information is below

The U.S. Food and Drugs Administration have received numerous complaints regarding DePuy's ASR hip replacements. It took DePuy several months to finally issue the recall even though it has received reports from foreign joint registries about its implants' high-failure rate. The company should be held liable for its apparent disregard for its recipients' wellbeing. For news and updates regarding the hip recall, visit http://www.hiprecalllaw.com

Mysteries tied to hip implant recall is slowly being presented and in fact, numerous lawsuits have been filed on manufacturers tied with this issue. Right now, the Pinnacle Hip Replacement is slowly becoming part of this recall picture and although a recall has not yet happened, we can actually foresee one coming.

The design of the Depuy hip implant was said to be the culprit why the device fails five years after it has been implanted. By designing a shallower cup and removing the plastic liner from the inside of the implant, DePuy had intended for patients to have a wider range of motion. However, the friction of the ball portion of the hip implant against the socket wears away cobalt and chromium particles from the device and into the soft tissue around the area leading to complications. There's more information that I came across in this website http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com , so if you want to know more, read on.
