 Recently, The New York Times cited a study that observed the outcomes of hip replacement surgeries over a five year period. It found that none of the modern, all-metal hip implants outlasted older versions and 30% were worse and caused more complications by comparison.  The metal-on-metal ASR XL Acetabular hip replacement, manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, is believed to have a design flaw.  This flaw has caused many patients to require hip revision surgery shortly after the placement of the implant.
