US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy Pinnacle All Metal Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them About A Specific Blood Test Designed To Determine A Failure-Nationwide

July 25, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to court records there are about 130,000 US citizens who are recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant, and because court records indicate premature failures as being a real problem with this hip implant our top priority is to see to it that every recipient 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 prematurely failed." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and a simple blood test to see if it has failed 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, “Because we believe the time for DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients will come and go with the vast majority of recipients never being compensated for a premature failure we are urging family members of a hip implant recipient who received their device between 2002, and 2011 to ask if it was a DePuy Pinnacle, and if the answer is yes, please call us immediatly, so we can provide simple instructions about a blood test that has been designed to measure for elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium. If these metal levels are elevated it probably means a premature failure of the hip implant." According to court records about 130,000 US citizens are recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant. 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 is emphasizing there are DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant recipients in all states including California, New York, Texas, Florida, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana , Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. For more information about this vital blood test 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." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant, and a critical blood test please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
