The DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System, more commonly known as the DePuy hip replacement, was first introduced in the United States in 2005. It was marketed as a safe, effective hip replacement that, as a result of its metal-on-metal design, had the potential to last much longer than other hip replacements already on the market. However, studies soon began to demonstrate that, not only did the DePuy hip replacement have a higher than normal failure rate, but that it could also pose additional risks to the health of patients. As a result, a recall for the device was initiated in 2010.
