The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "What has us terrified is of the nearly 40,000+ recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, only about 3400 hip implant recipients have been identified-so far to the federal court in Ohio handling this litigation. In this instance we believe the number of individuals identified should be closer to 35,000 recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients." The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010. The US Drug Watchdog also says, "With respect to the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant over 130,000 were surgically implanted between 2005 & 2010 in the US, there is already a Federal Multi District Litigation over the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and only 1000 have signed up so far?" According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "Extrapolating from overseas data and the estimate of metal hip use here, tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations over the next decade to replace the implants." The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "Even if your DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device has not failed-yet, we are offering to help get you identified to the best possible attorneys, because we do not want metal-on-metal hip implant recipients left holding the bag financially five years from now."

Symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include:
The US Drug Watchdog says, "The easiest way for a recipient of any type of metal on metal hip implant is starting to fail is to have a simple blood test that measures cobalt, or chromium levels in the blood stream."
