US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All Metal Hip Implant Recipients to Get a Blood Test for Elevated Metals Levels Out of Fear of Side Effects Related to Cobalt or Chromium
Date:1/29/2013

(PRWEB) January 29, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog is now urging all US citizens who are recipients of a metal on metal hip implant to get a blood test that is focused on cobalt, and chromium levels in their blood, because of a US FDA announcement on January 17th 2013 related to tissue damage for recipients of a metal on metal hip implant, and elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium levels in their blood. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have been working on the metal on metal hip implant mess for two years, and we have known about the tissue damage issue, and cobalt, and or chromium poisoning for at least a year and a half, and we cannot figure out why, or how it took the US FDA so long to come out with this announcement? Our bigger fear is what are elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium doing to the kidneys, or liver of a recipient of a metal on metal hip implant recipient? At what point does the US FDA plan to get around to these vital issues; after all we are only talking about 500,000 US citizens." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient has already had revision surgery to replace their failed metal on metal hip implant, in order to make certain they have the best possible law firm in their corner. For more information recipients of a metal on metal hip implant are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Specific metal on metal hip implant devices that are now subject to national litigation over the issue of a premature failure:
