US Drug Watchdog Says Its Vital We Now Identify All DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients That Have A Hip Implant Failure & Its Critical Family Members Help

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are over 100,000+ US citizens, who received a DePuy Pinacle hip implant, and tragically many DePuy Pinnacle hip implants are failing, or have failed. As a result, a multi district litigation has begun, as a way to prosecute these claims. The DePuy Pinnacle hip implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant device. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

US Drug Watchdog is 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 Pinnacle hip implant.

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We could have tens, and tens of thousands of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help." The US Drug Watchdog is 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 Pinnacle hip implant. According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate. A new study found that no new artificial hip or knee introduced during a recent five-year period - implants that included some of the all-metal hips - were more durable than older devices, and 30 percent were worse." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you are a recipient, or a loved one is a recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that has already failed, or showing symptoms of a failure, we want to get you identified, and we want to make certain you get to the best possible national caliber personal injury law firms, to insure you receive the best possible compensation."
