The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because DePuy Pinnacle hip implants were surgically installed on well over 130,000 US citizens, and because numerous studies are pointing to increased failure rates with metal-on-metal hip implants, we are doing every thing possible to get every victim of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure identified, so we can make sure they get to the best possible attorneys." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog says, "The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, it has already been well documented that there is a failure rate with the DePuy Pinnacle hip implants that was significant enough to warrant a national lawsuit over this specific hip implant device, and we want to get every DePuy Pinnacle recipient identified. If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy Pinnacle, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
