DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. announced it is discontinuing sales of its Ultamet Metal-on-Metal Articulation and Complete Ceramic-on-Metal Acetabular Hip System worldwide, effective Aug. 31.

The decision to discontinue these products was made because of low clinician use of Ultamet and Complete, the availability of other options that meet the clinical needs of patients and proposed changes in FDA regulation of the entire class of metal-on-metal products, which includes Ultimate. The discontinuation is not due to product safety or efficacy, and it is not a recall.
