Newsome Law Firm -- The recent voluntary worldwide recall of DePuy's ASR hip-resurfacing system and its ASR hip Acetabular system has 3,500 patients in Ireland wondering about their next move. If all 3,500 people require corrective surgery to remove and replace the recalled hip replacements, the costs could total over €100 million, an Irish Independent article noted. The total covers only the costs of the surgeries and does not include court costs or additional compensation for patients.
