DePuy Pinnacle Hip Lawsuit Filed By Wright & Schulte LLC On Behalf of Ohio Man Who Required Revision Surgery Purportedly From Defective Hip Implant
Date:7/12/2014

awsuit purports that when the Ohio man had the artificial hip implant in July 2009, the defendants had already received reports that the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System failed and they knew that the product was defective but did not disclose the information to the public. According to the complaint, the Ohio man had surgery in November 2013 to remove the artificial hip implant. Since the surgery, the man experienced pain and tenderness in his right hip that still has not gone away. The complaint further alleges that the Ohio man may be forced to undergo future revision surgeries and faces potential metal poisoning, bone loss, chronic pain, and other serious medical problems as well as a decrease in his quality of life. The DePuyPinnacle Hip Replacement lawsuit asserts that the defendants did not sufficiently test the design of the all-metal medical device and it was never approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as safe or effective for its intended purpose. (3:14-cv-2427)

According to the FDA, a metal-on-metal hip replacement device has a metal femoral head that rotates within a metal cup. The federal regulator says that in all-metal replacement hip devices, the metal ball and the metal cup rub against each other when a person is walking or running. This action can cause metal particles to wear off the device and fall in the area around the hip implant, according to the FDA. Additionally, wear and corrosion at the connection between the metal ball and taper of the stem may occur. As a result, some of the metal ions from the implant or from the metal particles can enter an individual’s bloodstream. The metal particles can also cause damage to the bone and tissue surrounding the implant and joint, which can lead to pain, the implant loosening, the device failing, and the need for recipients to have revision surgery.
