Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We need to 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, and do everything possible to get these people to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is going to matter, if one of these devices has a premature failure. 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 of the DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant 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

Because failure could still be in the future for any recipient, we think it is vital to identify all DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle recipients now, as an important way to protect their future

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our DePuy Pinnacle hip implant initiative, and our initiative focused on the recalled DePuy ASR hip implants are our most vital medical device initiatives ever. We want to get every recipient of one of these metal-on-metal hip implant devices identified by the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is going to be vital. Only about 3400 individuals have been identified, out of 40,000 recipients, for the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant device. Because of the high failure rate of the recalled DePuy ASR we need to get at least another 20,000 to 30,000 recipients identified, out of fear their device will prematurely fail in the future. In the instance of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant so far only about 1000 individual recipients have been identified by the federal court in Texas. The DePuy Pinnacle is now subject to a national class action, related to premature failures of this metal-on-metal hip implant device. Over 130,000 US citizens have received the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant. Because the issue of metal-on-metal hip implant failures is so vital we believe at a minimum 70,000 US recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle should be identified by the court, if for no other reason, but as insurance." 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." For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall, or the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that are both subject to national litigation recipients are urged to call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Because failure could still be in the future for any recipient, we think it is vital to identify all DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle recipients now, as an important way to protect their future."
