The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are about 140,000 US citizens, who received the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant between 2002 and 2010, and our goal is getting every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient identified, and we believe a simple blood test that measures cobalt, or chromium levels is the best way to determine if a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant has actually failed." According to court records, only about 3000 people have signed up for a class action because their DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has failed. Because some European health agencies are suggesting failure rates of 50% with metal on metal hip implants, the US Drug Watchdog beleives the numbers of DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant recipients identified to the court should probably be over 70,000. To achieve goal the group has expanded their very aggressive victims initiative, that includes access to national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants, and the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant.
