The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to court records only a fraction of the 130,000 recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant have been identified by the court handling this national litigation over issues of premature failures. We are strongly encouraging recipients of this specific metal on metal hip implant to call us about a specific blood test, that is both simple, and vital, because it is designed to indicate if cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated in a all metal hip implant recipient's blood stream. All metal hips are primarily made of cobalt, and chromium, according to court records. For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, and a vital blood test to determine elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466.
