US Drug Watchdog Openly Mocks The US FDA For Doing Little To Nothing About The Metal On Metal Hip Implant Disaster & Offers To Help Victims Get To The Best Attorneys

April 23, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is now openly mocking the US FDA for once again sitting on their hands, while up to half a million US citizens could now be stuck with a metal on metal hip implant device that might prematurely fail, or do even more damage because the metal debris could be giving these type of hip implant recipients blood poisoning. The United Kingdom is already on the verge of an out right ban of all metal on metal hip implants, and the US Drug Watchdog is convinced there are hundreds of thousands of US citizens, who are recipients of a metal-on-metal hip implant that has failed, or will fail prematurely. 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.” The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, or if the metal on metal hip implant recipient is concerned about a premature failure, in order to get them to the best attorneys. Metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to contact 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 is openly mocking the US FDA for their do nothing approach to what the group considers to be a looming disaster for hundreds of thousands of US citizens, who are recipients of what is called a metal on metal hip implant device. While there has already been one notable metal on metal hip implant recall, the group is saying, “We are hearing from numerous other metal on metal hip implant recipients, and they do not have a recalled DePuy ASR. So we have completely redesigned our web site in order to ensure all recipients of a failed metal on metal hip implant know that they have not been forgotten, or ignored.” The group expects there will be hundreds of thousands US metal-on-metal hip implant failure victims, and the US Drug Watchdog intends to create a seamless pathway where a US metal-on-metal hip implant recipient can get to the best possible personal injury attorneys; with the goal being compensation for what victims are going through, or what they might have to go through, should the hip implant prematurely fail. According to the New York Times, “Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate.” The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any US hip implant recipient, who received a metal on metal hip implant device after 2004, and whose metal-on-metal hip implant device has either already failed, or the recipient is experiencing symptoms of a hip implant failure that include swelling or pain in the region of the metal-on-metal hip implant and/or loss of mobility. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant or loss of mobility. Once again the US Drug Watchdog says, “Why have the US FDA constantly having to follow behind the Europeans by years, when it comes to medical device failures, like what we expect to see with the metal on metal hip disaster? We do not think most US citizens understand frequently FDA panelists resign from their positions at the US FDA, and go right back to work for a drug maker, or a medical device manufacturer. Are we the only group that has a problem with this?” 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 or loss of mobility, 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.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
