US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All Recipients Of A All Metal Hip Implant to Get A Blood Test Out of New Concerns About Side Effects and They Name Law Firms To Help Victims
Date:1/9/2013

(PRWEB) January 09, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog is urging all recipients of a metal on metal hip implant to get a blood test to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in their blood stream, because elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium might include potentially severe side effects, such as kidney, liver, or other damage. According to Medical News Today, on July 1st 2012, "Patients who receive metal-on-metal implants risk cobalt and chromium ions leaking into tissue. This can result in local reactions that damage bone and muscle, causing long-term disability in some cases. If metal ions seep into the bloodstream, which studies showed can happen, they can spread into the kidneys, lymph nodes, spleen, and liver causing more damage."

The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "According to the New York Times, there are 500,000 US citizens who have a metal on metal hip implant. We have been working on the metal on metal hip implant issue for two years, and as usual the US FDA is sitting on their hands-no meaningful studies about cobalt, or chromium poisoning. We have talked to thousands of failure victims, and we are convinced metal on metal hip implants are going to turn out to be one more preventable huge train wreck for innocent US consumers. We believe it is vital all US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant get a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium, and we are urging these individuals to call us if the blood test reveals elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium, so we can get them to the best possible law firms, that have expertise with specific metal on metal hip implant devices." For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant, loss of mobility, and elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood stream of the recipient. We think a blood test for cobalt, and or chromium are the best way for any metal on metal hip implant recipient to see if their hip implant device has failed." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

  • Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation ("MDL No. 2329"). This is now pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, or are concerned about a premature failure please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
