US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy Pinnacle All Metal Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them About A Vital Blood Test So No One Gets Left Behind Holding Medical Bill Bag

July 5, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are about 130,000 US citizens who are recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant, and our top priority is to see to it that every one gets a simple blood test to see if they have elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood, because we believe this is the best way to determine if one of these metal on metal hip implant devices has failed." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant 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, “According to court records about 130,000 US citizens are recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant. DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants were used between 2002, and 2011. The focus of our DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant victims initiative is identifying failure victims via a simple blood test, that is focused on elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the recipient's blood stream, and we firmly believe every recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant should call us, so we can give them the name of the blood test, along with simple instructions they will need to get a copy of the test. We do not want one recipient of a failed DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant holding the bag for medical bills related to a failure of one of these devices.” The DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant device is now the subject of national litigation. The focus of the US Drug Watchdog’s campaign is getting every recipient of a metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the court handling the national litigation-if there has been a failure. 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 a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip are urged to contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466.

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle hip metal on metal implant recipients get a blood test to determine if their hip implant has failed. In the event the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium we will get the recipient to national caliber law firms that have a superior record in representing their clients in these types of national lawsuits, involving possibly significant financial compensation."
