US Drug Watchdog will Expand Their Initiative Focused on Helping Recipients of a Failed DePuy Pinnacle All Metal Hip Implant with a New Emphasis on Blood Testing in 2013

(PRWEB) January 03, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We intend to dramatically increase our initiative focused on identifying more DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure victims in the coming new year. The key to our enhanced DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant victims initiative is identifying failure victims with blood tests. These blood tests need to be focused on identifying elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the recipients blood. According to court records, "The Europeans are suggesting a failure rate of 50% on all metal on metal hip implants, and, according to the New York Times on December 27th 2011. "The DePuy Pinnacle hip implant is the largest player with over 25% of all US metal on metal hip implant recipients. Nearly 140,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants were surgically installed on US citizens between 2002, and 2010." The DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant device is now the subject of a national class action lawsuit. The focus of the US Drug Watchdog’s campaign is getting every recipient of a metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys, with goal being compensation, in the event the device has failed.

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 says, “If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please get a blood test focused on cobalt, or chromium levels, and call us if these metal levels are elevated immediately at 866-714-6466.”
