Background on DePuy ASR & Pinnacle Hip Replacement Systems

Worldwide, DePuy is one of the biggest manufacturers of hip implant components and systems. Among its more prominent hip replacement systems are the:

  • Pinnacle, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 20001
  • ASR Hip Resurfacing System, launched in 2003
  • ASR XL Acetabular System, launched in 2005.

These systems are all designed to have metal-on-metal (MoM) components, which are made of cobalt, chromium and/or alloys. This means that ball-and-socket components of these devices, which replicate the hip joint, are all made of metal.

In addition to the MoM design, some Pinnacle systems are comprised of ceramic-on-metal, ceramic-on-ceramic or ceramic-on-polyethylene components.

DePuy’s ASR and Pinnacle systems have been used to treat various types of hip injuries and damage, including those arising from hip fractures, bone tumors and severe rheumatoid arthritis.

More minor and common side effects associated with DePuy’s MoM hip implants include (and may not be limited to):

  • Blood clots
  • Hip inflammation and pain
  • Increased risk of infection
  • Different leg lengths.
