Indeed weight problems are one of the common cause of hip problems that lead to hip replacement. To prevent the need for surgery, men and women might need to have a more active lifestyle to prevent joint problems. Hip replacement are not often the solution because it may also cause the problem. Several people have had to go through hip revision because the implants started to fail. http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/total-hip...

What really caught my attention in the interview was the fact that hip surgeries are increasing rapidly. To the manufacturers this may mean more business that they will disregard the safety of the patients much like what happened to DePuy ASR hip system. It has been alleged that despite reports of defective design, the company pushed through with the product which resulted to thousands of injuries. Hopefully they will put more emphasis on safety rather than money. To learn about this allegation which was brought up in the Kransky case, you may read up articles in DePuy ASR hip lawsuit information center.

The increase in number of hip surgeries for both men and women is guite big. This means that the market is quite large which might have motivated some companies to hurry the release of their devices even without the necessary tests. Going by the transcipt of the Kransky trails, this might have been the case of the DePuy ASR systems which was allegedly fast tracked for business reasons. This has resulted to pain and suffering to thousands of patients. To learn more of these issues, you may check DePuy Settlement Information Center.
