The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant since 2005, to ask if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, out of fear the family member may not want to complain." The group's goal is to identify at least 70,000 DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients, in order to insure they are covered in the event of a premature failure of this device.The Depuy Pinnacle hip implant device is the subject of a national class action in Texas. The group says, " As insurance we believe it is also vital to get every DePuy Pinnacle recipient identified to the best possible attorney, because we fear these hip implant devices may prematurely fail. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help, and we need family members to help us get these individuals identified. When we say help, we also mean making sure the DePuy ASR recipient has the best possible attorneys, so the victim, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient has a good chance of getting the best possible compensation, in the event of a failure."

Important Note:The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have learned that some orthopedic surgeons are unwilling to identify what type of metal-on-metal hip implant the recipient received. We are also learning that some hospitals, and or orthopedic surgeons are not allowing metal-on-metal hip implant recipients to take possession of their failed metal-on-metal hip implant device, after revision surgery. We are now working on a capability where the metal-on-metal hip implant recipient can keep their failed hip implant device, because we believe the failed metal-on-metal hip implant could be critical evidence. If a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient, or a recipient of any other type of failed metal-on-metal hip implant device is having this problem, please contact the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
