US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy Pinnacle Hip All Metal Hip Implant Recipients to Get Blood Tests & They Invite Local AV Rated Law Firms to Join Their Victims Effort

September 8, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “There are over 130,000 US recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant. These all metal hip implants were used between 2002, and 2010, and we are very focused on making certain these DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get blood tests aimed at discovering elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium, and we think the blood tests should happen every six months. We think blood testing is the best way to discover if a all metal hip implant has failed. Because of the size of this group of hip implant recipients we also think we need to build a team of the very best AV rated personal injury, or products liability law firms in every US state, so we can try to help not just the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients-but all US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant.” According to the New York Times, “Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate.” For more information about the US Drug Watchdog’s DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Initiative please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We now believe the over 130,000 US citizens who are recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant should get blood tests aimed at determining cobalt, and chromium levels every six months. Because we are talking about 130,000+ US citizens, we also think we need to identify AV rated personal injury law firms in each state, that have superior intake, and case management capabilities. The Europeans are suggesting failure rates of metal on metal hip implants, and we want everyone to take this seriously-130,000+ people is enough people to fill the famed Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and Madison Square Gardens in New York to capacity.” 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.” For more information recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog. AV rated personal injury law firms, that see the value of an instate approach to helping victims/recipients of a metal on metal hip implant are also encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Note to all US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant from the US Drug Watchdog: “We now believe the best way for any metal on metal hip implant recipient in the US to determine if their hip implant has failed, or is in the process of failing is to have blood tests twice a year-with a focus on elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium in their blood stream. The primary time frames for metal on metal hip implants in the US are 2002-2010.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “The reason we want to build a state by state team of AV rated personal injury, or product liability law firms is simple–many US victims of a defective pharmaceutical product, or medical device might not be willing to call a Texas attorney, because they live in Ohio, or call a California personal injury attorney, if they see a cable TV ad about a defective medical device in Alabama. In many ways the US is like 50 different countries-and it is for this reason we are inviting the very best personal injury law firms, or best products liability law firms in each state to give us a call at 866-714-6466. Because every state is different, our state specific metal on metal hip implant initiatives will all vary-the fact set will be the same, but the atmospherics will be local.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
