US Drug Watchdog Now Calls Its Identification of All DePuy ASR And DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients Imperative And Says Compensation Is The Goal

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog is calling their initiatives focused on identifying every recipient of the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant, along with their initiative to identify every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient their most important medical device initiatives ever. The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010 because of a very high failure rate, and the DePuy Pinnacle is now the subject of a national class action because of a high failure rate. The group says, "We have one gigantic problem with the recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, and or the recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant; not enough people have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases. Between the recalled DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle we have over 170,000+ US recipients. However, only about 4500 individuals have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases thus far. To insure no DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, or no DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets left on the curb, holding the bag for a problem they did not create, we believe the number of recalled DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients need to go up to over 100,000, and we intend to make sure this happens. How do you compensate a US citizen, who received a metal-on-metal hip implant, who is now crippled?" The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our ASR DePuy recalled hip implant initiative is our most important recalled medical device initiative ever. Unfortunately, many individuals who received a now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery; so as a result 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, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant." The group says, "In the instance of the now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, these devices were sold as the right hip implant for younger adults who wanted to have an active or athletic lifestyle." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We know there are about 170,000 recipients of the now recalled DePuy ASR, and or the Depuy Pinnacle, and we are on a mission to make certain every recipient gets identified to the best possible attorney, so they will be compensated in the event their metal-on-metal hip implant prematurely fails, or already has failed." For more information about the DePuy hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get to attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. We do not want any recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle sitting on the curb, for a disaster that was not their doing."
