US Drug Watchdog Now Urges The All US Recipients of a Metal Hip Implant To Get A Blood Test For Metals Levels and They Offer To Help All Victims Get To The Best Law Firms

(PRWEB) January 31, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are urging all US metal on metal hip implant recipients to get a blood test aimed at identifying cobalt, or chromium levels in their blood. If the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium we believe that is the easiest way for a recipient to determine if their all metal hip implant has failed. We are talking about a potentially huge group of people. According to the New York Times 500,000 US citizens are recipients of a metal on metal hip implant." 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 instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do." All US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2012 are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information. The group is also encouraging any metal on metal hip implant recipient who has already had revision surgery, or a surgery to replace their all metal hip implant to call the group for names of specific law firms, that have a expertise in the area of defective medical devices.

Metal on metal hip manufacturers that are now involved in national litigation because their metal on metal hip implant device has prematurely failed:

  • DePuy Pinnacle Case Number U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas MDL#2244
  • DePuy ASR Case Number Ohio Southern Federal District Court Case Number MDL No. 2197AAJ
  • Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Stem Failure Teleseminar: Metallosis with No Metal on Metal Articulation will address the issues surrounding the latest hip replacement systems recall. On July 6, 2012 Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems in the United States.
  • Biomet M2a Magnum Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. (Case No. 3:12-cv-3476) filed on July 2nd 2012.
  • Zimmer Durom Cup Product Liability mass tort litigation, MDL NO. 2158 (SDW), which is pending in the federal District Court in New Jersey (time frame 2006-July 2008).
  • 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 please share this press release with them. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant recipients get a blood test, and if their cobalt, and or chromium levels are elevated we want to make certain these victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal.”
