US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy ASR and DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients to Call Them for the Names of the Best Law Firms -- Don't Get Left Holding the Bag

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Between the recalled DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle we have about 180,000 US recipients. However, only about 8000 individuals have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases thus far-that we know of. To insure no DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, or no DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets left on the curb, holding the bag for a problem they did not create, we believe the number of recalled DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients need to go up well over 100,000. How do you compensate a US citizen, who received a metal-on-metal hip implant, who is now crippled?" The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010 because of a very high failure rate, and the DePuy Pinnacle is now the subject of a national class action because of failure rate issues.The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, before time runs out to get identified by the courts, and hopefully compensated." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog now believes a simple blood test that focuses in on cobalt, or chromium levels might be the easiest way to see if a metal on metal hip implant has failed

(PRWEB) November 12, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear there may be a deadline to get all recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients identified-or it may be too late. In the instance of the recalled DePuy ASR-we do not care if the device has failed yet or not, we want all recipients to call us in the hopes we can get then to the best possible attorneys. We have the exact same sense of urgency with the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant." The US Drug Watchdog is strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2002 and 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant? The US Drug Watchdog says, "We know there are about 180,000 recipients of the now recalled DePuy ASR, and or the Depuy Pinnacle hip implant, and we are on a mission to make certain every recipient gets identified to the best possible attorneys, so they will be compensated in the event their metal-on-metal hip implant has already has failed, or might prematurely fail in the near future." For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall, or the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implants 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 says,"Symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or the DePuy Pinnacle failure include, pain in the hip region, problems while walking, or the inability to walk, swelling of the hip implant area, general discomfort, lack of flexibility, elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood stream." The US Drug Watchdog now believes a simple blood test that focuses in on cobalt, or chromium levels might be the easiest way to see if a metal on metal hip implant has failed. The DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle are both metal on metal hip implants. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
