  1. The major problem with the DePuy ASR hip replacement system is the rate of wear and tear between the implant and the bone. All hip replacement systems wear a little each year, but the significant volume of sub-microscopic particles being distributed into the blood stream by the these systems has given cause for the DePuy recall.
