US Drug Watchdog Urges All 500,000 US Recipients Of All Metal Hip Implants To Get Blood Tests For Cobalt-Chromium Levels & Offers The Names Of The Best Law Firms To Help

August 20, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “The Europeans are suggesting failure rates involving metal on metal hip implants of 50%, or more, and they may soon be requiring annual blood testing to determine if a metal on metal hip implant has failed. If the Europeans are suggesting this we think it wise for any US recipient of a metal on metal hip implant to start doing the same thing. At the same time we are mocking the US FDA for being in the bag for big pharmaceutical, or medical device companies. Why no metal on metal hip implant recalls that are FDA sponsored?” The US Drug Watchdog now has a goal of identifying at least half of all US metal on metal hip implant recipients to the best possible law firms, because they do not want to see 100,000′s of US citizens crippled, and left holding the bag for a problem that should not be their’s.” US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We have a new big worry with the US metal on metal hip implant disaster. Its called cobalt, or chromium poisoning from debris created by friction of the parts of the metal on metal hip implants. Elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium could cause renal failure, or severe liver damage-so we are telling all US metal on metal hip implant recipients to start getting annual blood testing for cobalt, or chromium. With 500,000 US citizens involved one would think the metal on metal hip implant disaster would be daily national news throughout the US. Within the last year we are only aware of two significant national stories involving the metal on metal hip implant disaster for US citizens, and nothing from the worthless US FDA.” As a background according to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, “The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device’s ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement.” The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, or if the recipient is concerned about a premature failure, in order to make sure they get identified to the best possible law firms. Victims, or any metal on metal hip implant recipient can contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information, or they can contact the group via the web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, such as swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility, loss of mobility, or elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal, or an ordeal right around the corner.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
