US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy ASR And DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them For The Names Of The Best Lawyers-Because They Fear Premature Failures

The US Drug Watchdog says, "To insure no recalled 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 urging all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR, and or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that is subject to national litigation to start getting blood tests to see if their cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated. Between the Depuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant there are about 180,000 recipients in the United States." 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 compensated-especially if you are a senior citizen." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

There are about 180,000 US citizens who are recipients of these specific types of all metal hip implants, and only a small fraction of these metal on metal hip implant recipients have been identified as failures.

(PRWEB) November 26, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are on a mission to make certain every recipient of the now recalled DePuy ASR, and or the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is protected in the event their hip implant device has already failed, or should it prematurely fail in the near future. There are about 180,000 US citizens who are recipients of these specific types of metal on metal hip implants, and only a small fraction of these metal on metal hip implant recipients have been identified as failures. Some European health agencies are suggesting failure rates of 50% for all metal hip implants." The DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant was recalled in August of 2010, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is now subject to national litigation. The US Drug Watchdog believes many individuals, especially senior citizens who received a now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery; so as a result they do not complain. The group 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? For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall, or the problematic DePuy Pinnacle hip implant please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood.

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get to attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. We do not want any recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle sitting on the curb, for a disaster that was not their doing."
