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
(PRWEB) April 12, 2012
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.
