The US Drug Watchdog says, “We do not want one recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR XL metal on metal hip implant left stuck on the curb with a hip implant that could prematurely fail. Unfortunately the time to get victims has run out in some states. However, if you live in Arkansas, Washington D.C., Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming the statute of limitations may not have run out yet, and we really do need to hear from you.” 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.” For more information recipients of a recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant in one of these states should contact the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients get a specific type of blood test to determine if their cobalt, and chromium levels are elevated. We will help the recipient evaluate their blood test to determine if there are elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium in the blood. We believe the process we have developed is transparent, it is very simple, and it is vital if you have a metal on metal hip implant-especially if you live in one of the states we have listed. We do not want any recipient of a now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, with what could be a failed hip implant to go uncompensated, and we will do everything in our power to make certain they get to the best law firm to help them.” For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
