US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them About A Vital Blood Test That Should Reveal A Premature Failure
Date:7/30/2013

(PRWEB) July 30, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our top priority is to make certain every recipient of the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is compensated in the event their hip implant device has already failed, or should it prematurely fail in the near future, and we think the easiest way to make this determination is with a blood test, that has been specifically designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in a all metal hip implant recipient's blood stream." The US Drug Watchdog's DePuy Pinnacle Blood Test Initiative requires a few easy instructions for a recipient of one of this specific all metal hip implant, and they encourage a recipient to call them anytime at 866-714-6466. The group also wants to emphasize this is a national initiative nationwide, that includes California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and all other states.

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood.

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get a blood test to determine if their hip implant has failed. In the event the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium we will get the recipient to national caliber law firms that have a superior record in representing their clients in these types of national lawsuits, involving potentially significant financial compensation."
