The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to court records DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implants were surgically installed on nearly 140,000 US citizens. Numerous European health studies are pointing to a possible 50% failure rate with all metal-on-metal hip implants-so are doing everything possible to get every DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient identified now, in order to ensure they get to the best possible attorneys, out of fear their device might prematurely fail, or the hip implant has already failed." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "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, "The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, and we want to get every DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient identified just in case the device has already failed, or it fails prematurely. If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy Pinnacle please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
