The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Abbdella Brown. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke.

According to court documents, on May 7th 2012, a 51-year-old woman from Williamsburg, Virginia, Abbdella Brown, filed a lawsuit in Ohio Northern District Court (case no. 1:2012dp21074) against DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, alleging she suffered serious injuries due to ASR Hip Implant Device. Plaintiff was implanted with a DePuy ASR hip implant in February 2007.

In October 2010, Brown suffered pain, as well as elevated chromium and cobalt levels resulting in the need for revision surgery, allegedly due to her implants. Brown had the ASR hip replacements explanted in June 2011. In August 2010, a Johnson And Johnson Recall of the DePuy ASR was announced.

DePuy Orthopeadics is defending lawsuits in Multidistrict Litigations alleging that its ASR hip replacement (MDL 2197) and the metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip replacement systems (MDL 2244) were defectively designed.

More than 6,000 lawsuits are pending against Johnson & Johnson over its defective DePuy ASR hip replacements. Judge David A. Katz, who is overseeing the federal MDL in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, said it includes about 4,200 suits. The other 2,000 cases are filed in state courts, including Nevada, Florida, California, Maryland, Utah and Wisconsin.

In March 2012, results of a study presented at the British Hip Society Annual Conference, showed that DePuy ASR XL device had a higher than anticipated early failure rate as the rate of second operations, or revisions, ranged from 21% after four years to 49% after six years.

According to court documents, on March 15th, 2012, a California resident, Therese Gonzales, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv01651) against Zimmer Inc. alleging that Zimmer Durom Cup was defectively designed and caused her pain and side effects that “are consistent with loosening of the acetabular cups used in her hip replacements”. The Zimmer Durom Cup is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. On June 9th, 2010, the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered the centralization of products liability cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup hip device (MDL 2158). This new lawsuit joins the multidistrict litigation in the New Jersey District Court, where the pre-trial proceedings have been consolidated in at least 75 cases.

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Therese Gonzales. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

According to court documents, on March 15th, 2012, a California resident, Therese Gonzales, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv01651) against Zimmer Inc. alleging that the Zimmer Durom Cup was defectively designed and caused her pain and side effects. The Zimmer Durom Cup is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. Gonzales received a right Zimmer Durom Cup total hip replacement in 2006, and her left joint was replaced the following year in San Diego. After her surgeries, Gonzales said she began to have pain. Her attorney said the side effects she’s experiencing “are consistent with loosening of the acetabular cups used in her hip replacements.”

On June 9th, 2010, the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered the centralization of products liability cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup hip device (MDL 2158).
