US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All 500,000 US Recipients Of A Metal on Metal Hip Implant To Get A Blood Test for Elevated Levels Of Cobalt and Chromium
Date:1/15/2013

(PRWEB) January 15, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "The BBC is now suggesting the Europeans are on the verge of requiring annual blood testing for all metal on metal hip implant recipients, and we have concluded the best way for a US recipient of a all metal hip implant to determine if their hip implant device has failed-is to have a simple blood test to see if their blood contains elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium. If the blood work reveals elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the metal on metal hip implant recipient's blood we want them to call us immediately, so we can direct them to the best possible law firms." US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Litigation involving metal on metal hip implants prematurely failing include the following manufacturers:"

  • DePuy Pinnacle Case Number U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas MDL#2244
  • DePuy ASR Case Number Ohio Southern Federal District Court Case Number MDL No. 2197AAJ
  • Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Stem Failure Teleseminar: Metallosis with No Metal on Metal Articulation will address the issues surrounding the latest hip replacement systems recall. On July 6, 2012 Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems in the United States.
  • Biomet M2a Magnum Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. (Case No. 3:12-cv-3476) filed on July 2nd 2012.
  • Zimmer Durom Cup Product Liability mass tort litigation, MDL NO. 2158 (SDW), which is pending in the federal District Court in New Jersey (time frame 2006-July 2008).
  • Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation ("MDL No. 2329"). This is now pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia

The US Drug Watchdog says, “One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant please share this press release with them. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com
