DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Canadian Report That Shows Some Metal-on-Metal Hip Recipients More Likely to Need Revision Surgery
Date:7/23/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

As DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit claims continue to mount in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that a new report out of Canada shows that patients fitted with certain metal-on-metal hip implants are more likely to require revision surgery to have their hip replaced. According to the report, which was released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information on July 18th, patients with large-diameter modular metal-on-metal hip replacements had a 5.9 percent chance of needing a second implant within five years compared with a 2.7 percent chance among recipients of the most common type of metal-on-plastic device. To reach its conclusions, the Institute looked at data from 56,942 hip replacement surgeries that were performed in all Canadian provinces except Quebec from 2003 to 2011.*

“We are not surprised at all by the Institute’s findings. The report echoes what we have seen from our own metal-on-metal clients, including those we are representing in Pinnacle hip lawsuits,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to alleged victims of serious complications associated with the all-metal DePuy Pinnacle Hip and other metal-on-metal hip implants.
