DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Impending Metal-on-Metal Hip Ban in UK Hospitals
Date:10/29/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

As DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits (http://www.depuypinnacle-lawsuit.com/) involving a metal-on-metal version of the DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement System continue to move forward in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that regulators in the U.K. may be close to banning the use of most metal-on-metal hip implants in NHS hospitals. According to a report published by The Telegraph, draft guidance prepared by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) directs the NHS to stop using any hip implant with a failure rate higher than 5% at five years. The regulator decided to act after research involving 17,000 patients fitted with such devices uncovered failure rates as high as 43 percent among some types of metal-on-metal hip implants.*

“Our Firm is representing hundreds of clients in Pinnacle hip lawsuits that involve a metal-on-metal version of the DePuy Pinnacle hip, and we also continue to hear from individuals fitted with other all-metal hips. In light of the failure rates associated with these devices, news that NICE may be close to implementing a metal-on-metal hip ban in NHS hospitals is not really surprising,” 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 metal-on-metal hip implants.

DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuits
In the U.S., court documents indicate that more than 4,600 DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits involving a metal-on-metal version of the hip system that utilizes the Ultamet liner have been filed in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas. All of the plaintiffs with claims pending in that proceeding have suffered metal
