The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implants were surgically installed about 140,000 US citizens, and because numerous studies are pointing to increased failure rates with metal-on-metal hip implants, we are doing everything possible to help every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient see if their all metal hip implant has failed. We now believe a simple blood test that is focused on determining elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium is currently the best way to see if a all metal hip implant has failed." As a background on 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 DePuy Pinnacle hip implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, and the US Drug Watchdog is offering to help every recipient of this type of all metal hip implant get identified to the best possible law firms, in the event this specific type of all metal hip implant has failed. For more information recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant are welcome to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
