FDA and Depuy answer questions on the Recall and metal on metal hips -resources for new patients looking into the recall

Thought I would offer up two sites to new site visitors  for general information.  I would suggest two sites:
  • The FDA site
  • The Depuy ASR hip recall guide 
Questions below on the FDA site.  Answers can be found right on their site:
http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/ProductsandMedicalProcedures/ImplantsandProsthetics/MetalonMetalHipImplants/ucm241766.htm
 (scroll over to get the full URL.)


  The Depuy ASR Hip Replacement Recall Guide
http://www.depuy.com/asr-hip-replacement-recall

They cover 5 areas in this guide and have helpful information which can take you through the process:

  • Reasons for the recall
  • What to do
  • Symptoms and Causes
  • Testing
  • Treatment
  • Reimbursment
