Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to a New York Times article dated December 27th 2011, there were over 130,000 plus DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal surgically installed on US citizens between 2005, and 2010, and we are very focused on getting everyone of these DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients identified." According to federal court records, only nine hundred people have signed up for the Texas based national class action. Because of the failure rate associated with metal on metal hip implants, the US Drug Watchdog believes the number of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients should probably be over 75,000 minimum, so they are initiating a very intensive public awareness campaign to ensure all DePuy pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients have access to the best national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants, and the very real possibility of a failure with these types of hip implants." 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, or you want to insure against potential future 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 make certain you receive the best possible compensation."

we to make certain every DePuy pinnacle hip implant recipient has been identified, regardless if the metal on metal hip implant device has failed or not

The US Drug Watchdog says, "With over 130,000 plus DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants that were surgically installed on US citizens, combined with the fact that metal-on-metal hip implants are failing at an unacceptably high rate, we are calling our DePuy Pinnacle hip implant initiative one of our most important medical device campaigns ever. The focus of this campaign is getting victims of a failed metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with goal being compensation. 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.
