Mitch TRH Hip Implant Recall
Shine Lawyers are investigating a hip replacement system, Mitch TRH, which was recalled on 16 April, 2012. Mitch TRH has two components, one being a modular head. The head combined with other parts manufactured by different brands has a higher rate of revision surgery than the average for conventional hip replacements.
Approximately 400 Australians have been implanted with the Mitch TRH implant.
ASR Hip Prosthesis Recall
In August 2010 Depuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, recalled the Depuy ASR resurfacing hip prosthesis and the Depuy ASR XL hip prosthesis due to adverse results and higher than expected rates of revisionary surgery.
The ASR hip prosthesis was implanted in approximately 5,500 Australians and 93,000 people worldwide.
ASR Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant
The ASR hip replacement systems are metal-on-metal implants. The devices consist of an acetabular cup designed as a cobalt chromium alloy. The Depuy ASR hip prosthesis are indicated for use in total hip replacement and resurfacing procedures.
