The US Drug Watchdog says, "We urgently need family members, or loved ones of any hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant, and we are urging the family members request the recipient get a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood. We consider a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium the best way to determine if any type of metal on metal hip implant has prematurely failed; including the DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant." Why so much concern about metal on metal hip implants? According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients."

The group says, "We want to make certain all metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, in these types of medical device lawsuits.
