Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

A jury in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, returned a verdict today in favor of DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. in a product liability lawsuit concerning the ASR™ Hip System.
"DePuy’s actions concerning the product were appropriate and responsible, including the program to address patients’ medical costs related to the recall," said Lorie Gawreluk, a spokeswoman for DePuy.

In response to this recall  the FDA has established a new protocol for metal on metal hips, both replacement and resurfaced.

I went for my 4 year follow up yesterday and learned about it from my doc. Going forward the FDA will require some level of yearly imaging yet to be finalized, either MRI or Xray. Also required will be blood testing to check levels of chromium and cobalt.

Submitted FYI.

interesting... how can they 'require' that?

if I'm not symptomatic... i dont think I'm going to be proactively spending $ for MRI's and tests.

I'm not sure how they will "enforce". Perhaps it's a guideline. I am completely asymptomatic as well. When I got my hip I was told that thee would be follow up visits @1, 2 and 4 years. Wednesday's visit was the 4 year check up. SO I had to go anyway.

As I was leaving I stopped by the office to see what my co-pay was and I was told that 100% of the cost was being assumed by some combination of the doctor and the hospital. I was told that If I received any kind of a bill that I should send it to the doctor's office.

Who knows? Maybe this falls into the category of 'funded mandate'.
