US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All US Recipients of an All Metal Hip Implant to Get a Blood Test for Cobalt-Chromium Levels and They Offer Victims of a Failure Legal Contacts
Date:1/2/2013

(PRWEB) January 02, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are now urging any recipient of a metal on metal hip device, that was surgically implanted within the last 12 years to get a blood test focused on elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium." As a background 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. 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 wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, such as elevated levels of cobalt and chromium in their blood stream. If a metal on metal hip implant recipient has elevated cobalt, or chromium levels the US Drug Watchdog will recommend law firms that specialize in specific types of metal on metal hip implant devices.The group fears without this kind of effort tens of thousands of US citizens will get left holding the bag with a failed hip implant, with no funding from the manufacturer for a surgery to replace the failed medical product. 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

  • 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, such as elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant failure victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible financial compensation for their ordeal.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
