The US Drug Watchdog says, "We believe the best way to determine a premature failure of DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant device is a simple blood test that is focused on elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium in a recipients blood test, and if a recipient calls us we will give them all the information they need about this specific blood test. We are also offering to have the blood test results analyzed for the recipient at no cost to the recipient." Because court records indicate 130,000 US citizens are recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, and because there is national litigation involving premature failures of this hip implant device the US Drug Watchdog is encouraging every recipient to call them for more information about how vital it is to get this specific blood test that is designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in their blood. The group is also indicating time is of the essence to get recipients with a failed DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant identified if it has failed, and all recipients in any state can still get signed up, if their DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has failed including California, New York, New jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona, California, Oregon, Idaho, and Washington. For more information, recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant are urged to contact the US Drug watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466.
According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, lack of flexibility, or elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the recipients blood." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get a blood test to determine if their hip implant has failed.
