DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit Claims Mount, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Nearly 6,000 Filings in Federal Pinnacle Hip Litigation
Date:12/4/2013

nd other complications that may necessitate revision surgery to remove and replace the device. The lawsuits further allege that the metal-on-metal Pinnacle suffers from some of the same design defects that prompted DePuy Orthopaedics to recall the ASR hip in 2010. The complaints question whether or not a DePuy Pinnacle recall should be issued as well.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned in January 2013 that hip implants with a metal-on-metal design appeared to be failing at a higher rate than devices constructed of other materials. Among other things, the agency advised metal-on-metal hip implant recipients who experience pain and swelling around the joint, mobility issues, or other signs of a failing hip to undergo blood tests for elevated levels of metal ions. The agency has also proposed new rules for metal hips, including a requirement that manufacturers of metal-on-metal hips currently on the market conduct safety studies of their products if they plan to continue selling them.

According to a Bloomberg.com report from May 2013, the FDA’s regulatory stance regarding metal-on-metal hips played a role in DePuy’s decision to end sales of such devices, including the all-metal Pinnacle.*

Alleged victims of injuries associated with the metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
