In August of 2010, the recall of two types of hip implants was announced by DePuy Orthopedics, a division of Johnson and Johnson due to early failure rates which were higher than expected. Recalled were the ASR XL Acetabular System, used for total hip replacements, which has been FDA approved and has been used in the United States and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System, which was not approved in this country but have been used in clinical trials and were received by patients who traveled to other countries for the surgery. Approximately 93,000 of these devices were implanted.
