US Drug Watchdog Now Offers to Help All DePuy ASR and DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients Get to the Best Possible Attorneys and Lists Symptoms of Hip Implant Failure

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because of the high failure rate associated with the DePuy ASR and DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, we believe it is vital we identify all US recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant and the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant that is now subject to a national class action lawsuit over the issue of failures. These metal-on-metal artificial hips were surgically implanted on over one hundred and fifty thousand US citizens between 2005 and early 2010, and the courts so far have only identified about 4000 individuals. We need to get every recipient identified, and we will offer suggestions to the hip implant recipients as to the highest national caliber law firms, to advance their claim." Symptoms of a recalled DePuy ASR or 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 recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant, that is also subject to national class action please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

We firmly believe we have one hundred fifty thousand plus DePuy Pinnacle, or DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our efforts to identify every recipient of the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal and/or the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that is now the subject of a national class action lawsuit is the most complicated campaign we have ever been involved with. One of our biggest problems is individuals who received a recalled DePuy ASR, or the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant may not want to complain because they don't want to go through hip replacement surgery again. 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 or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "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, "We firmly believe we have one hundred fifty thousand plus DePuy Pinnacle or DePuy ASR hip implant recipients 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."
