Our lawyers are reviewing Wright Profemur hip replacement lawsuits.
The data that triggers these lawsuits in part comes from Australia. Why Australia? There is no joint registry that tracks medical devices like hip replacements in the U.S. (I’ll let you be the judge of whether this fact is a benefit to hip replacement and other medical device manufacturers.)
Anyway, Wright Medical’s Profemur hip replacements have an innovation that on its face is a very cool feature: a modular stem that allows the surgeons more options in tailoring the hip replacement to the patient. In theory, this technology causes less soft tissue injury during and after the hip surgery. You can easily imagine the doctor explaining to patients how fortunate they are to need a hip replacement at such an opportune time in the evolution of hip implants.
Now back to the Australian data. The Wright Profemur hip replacement has a failure rate in Australia of 11.2 percent after three years. Is this exact number too high? Too low? No one knows. But what we do know is that anything close to this is a reason for a recall. Disagree? Ask DePuy what they think.
