The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "Of the nearly 40,000+ recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, only about 3300 hip implant failure victims have been identified-so far. In this instance we believe the number of individuals identified should be closer to 15,000 DePuy ASR hip implant recipients." The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010. The US Drug Watchdog also says, "With respect to the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant over 100,000 were surgically implanted between 2005 & 2010 in the US, there is already a Federal Multi District Litigation over the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, but our big worry here is only about nine hundred individuals have signed up so far." Both the DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants, have shown a high failure rate. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "There is no data on the number of all-metal hips that have failed prematurely in this country because the outcomes of orthopedic procedures are not formally tracked by the government or private companies. But extrapolating from overseas data and the estimate of metal hip use here, tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations over the next decade to replace the implants." The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "Even if your DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device has not failed-yet, we think it is vital we get you identified to the best possible attorneys, because we do not want metal-on-metal hip implant recipients left holding the bag financially ten years from now."

"Even if your DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device has not failed-yet, we think it is vital we get you identified to the best possible attorneys, because we do not want metal-on-metal hip implant recipients left holding the bag

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Even if your DePuy ASR hip implant has not yet failed, there is a good chance it will, so we believe you should positioned to be compensated in the event it will. With the issue of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant, we intend to grow the number of the Pinnacle hip implant failure victims, or potential victims to at last 30,000. Our Fear is once the lawsuits, or Multi District Litigations (MDL's) are over, DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle victims will have slim to none chances of meaningful recourse against the makers of these metal-on-metal hip implants." According to the US FDA, symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the metal-on-metal hip implant, loss of mobility, swelling in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, " 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 is urging all DePuy ASR, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients to call them immediately so the group can get them identified to the best possible attorneys.
