The US Drug Watchdog is urging all recipients of a DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to get a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have a huge fear for all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, and or the recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant; not enough failure victims have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases. Between the recalled DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle we have about 180,000 US recipients. However, only about 15,000 individuals have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases thus far-that we know of. We do not want a all metal hip implant recipient left behind with nothing for their ordeal. We think a simple blood test changes all of this." The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010 because of a very high failure rate, and the DePuy Pinnacle is now the subject of a national class action because of failure rate issues. The group says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement surgery involving the recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and a blood test has revealed elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, so we can try to find you the best possible law firm." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog says," We believe the best symptoms of a metal on metal hip implant failure are elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipient's blood stream." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients that are dealing with a failure get to attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. We do not want any recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle sitting on the curb, with the bills for a failed all metal hip implant."
