We could have tens of thousands of DePuy hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery, they say nothing.
(PRWEB) February 09, 2012
The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because many individuals, who received a DePuy ASR hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, they do not complain. Because of this, we are strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR hip implant." The US Drug Watchdog applauds the NBC Nightly News for calling attention to the DePuy hip implant recall, and the issues with metal on metal hip implants on Tuesday October 4th 2011, along with the New York Times for their story about metal-on-metal hip implants on December 27th, 2011. The US Drug Watchdog says, "What worries us is the fact that the DePuy ASR hip implant was sold as the right hip implant for younger, or older adults, who wanted to maintain an active, or athletic lifestyle." The group says, "We could have tens of thousands of DePuy hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help."
