We are urging all recipients of a now recalled DePuy ASR, or the DePuy Pinnacle that is subject to national litigation because of failure issues to start getting blood tests
(PRWEB) November 28, 2012
The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are about 180,000 US citizens who have a DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant. Some European health agencies are now suggesting a 50% failure rate with metal on metal hip implants.To insure no DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, or no DePuy Pinnacle all metal 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, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients needs to go up to over 80,000, and we want to make certain these individuals get to the best possible attorneys, or law firms-should their hip implant fail prematurely." The US Drug Watchdog is calling their initiatives focused on identifying every recipient of the recalled DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure victims one of their most important medical device initiatives ever. 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 failures. For more information recipients of a DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant are encouraged to contact The US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
The US Drug Watchdog indicates 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
- General Discomfort
- Lack of Flexibility
- Elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood. The US Drug Watchdog believes blood testing is the best way to determine a metal on metal hip implant failure.
