Published: Sep 12, 2012
Eight executives from Johnson & Johnson's DePuy Orthopaedics division are slated to testify in the personal injury lawsuits filed over its recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant. Eight former and current executives from Johnson & Johnson's (NYSE:JNJ) DePuy Orthopaedics subsidiary are being called to testify in the multi-district litigation over the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant. Warsaw, Ind.-based DePuy Orthopedics pulled its ASR XL acetabular and ASR hip resurfacing systems off the market in August 2010, after receiving reports that a higher-than-normal number of patients required surgeries to correct or remove defective implants.
