US Drug Watchdog Now Urges DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them About A Vital Blood Test Designed To Test For A Possible All Metal Hip Implant Failure

June 12, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, “To insure no DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets left on the curb, holding the bag for a problem they did not create, we are urging all recipients of this specific all metal hip implant device to get a very specific blood test, that has been designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in a recipients blood stream.” For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We are extremely passionate about making certain every recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant gets a blood test, that has been designed to measure chromium, and cobalt levels in their blood steam, because we think this is by far the most effective, and cost efficient way to determine if this type of cobalt, and chromium hip implant has failed, or has begun to fail.” The DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant was recalled in August of 2010, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is now subject to national litigation. The US Drug Watchdog believes many individuals, who received a now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery; so as a result they do not complain. The group is strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2002 and 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant? For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466.

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the DePuy Pinnacle failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood

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 Pinnacle hip implant recipients get to attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. We do not want any recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle sitting on the curb, with a failed hip, and expensive medical bills.” For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com
