victims of the now recalled ASR DePuy hip implant is close to 1000,000; nearly enough to fill the famed Rose Bowl, and we need to get every recipient identified, in order to see if their ASR DePuy hip implant has started to fail
(Vocus/PRWEB) February 07, 2011
The US Drug Watchdog says, "the number of potential US victims of the now recalled ASR DePuy hip implant is close to 1000,000; nearly enough to fill the famed Rose Bowl, and we need to get every recipient identified, in order to see if their ASR DePuy hip implant has started to fail." The US Drug Watchdog is strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2005, and early 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy hip implant, also known as a ASR DePuy hip implant. They say, "most US ASR DePuy hip implant victims are elderly, or senior citizens, and we are extremely worried the vast majority of victims will not complain, even if they are suffering pain, having problems walking, have swelling of the hip, or have lost flexibility." The group says, "we are now certain we have tens of thousands of US DePuy hip implant recipients, living each day with a failed hip implant. Nothing is more important to us than trying to getting all ASR DePuy hip implant victims identified, and we will help with the process." For more information about the DePuy hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com.
The US Drug Watchdog's ASR DePuy hip implant failure symptoms include:
- Pain in the Hip Region
- Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
- Swelling of the Hip
- General Discomfort
- Lack of Flexibility
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog, and advocate in the United States. The group says, "tragically the Internet is loaded with misleading advertisements about ASR DePuy hip implant compensation, lawsuits, or class actions; unfortunately most of the attorneys, or law firms advertising for help with the ASR DePuy hip implant failures are middlemen marketing law firms-not the actual trial law firms, that will prosecute these cases." They say, "we want to make certain all ASR DePuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms, or trial attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients-period-no middleman marketing law firms, or attorneys."
