We are being flooded with calls from recipients of failed metal-on-metal hip implants, that are not just limited to the recalled DePuy ASR. Why does the US FDA lag behind the European's
(PRWEB) April 20, 2012
The US Drug Watchdog says, "40,000 US citizens have the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant, and it is urgent we hear from them if their hip area is now swollen, if they have hip related pain, if they are having problems walking, and or if they have lost flexibility in their hip region." The group says, "The recalled DePuy ASR implant typical recipient is not necessarily a US senior citizen, these hip implant were also surgically implanted on young adults, and or middle aged US Citizens. The recalled DePuy ASR hip implant was marketed as the hip implant, that was well suited for athletes, runners, or individuals who liked to exercise." The recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implants were widely used throughout the United States from 2005, until 2010, by orthopedic surgeons. What fears the US Drug Watchdog the most is of the 40,000 recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US, on about 3500 have be identified by the Ohio Federal District Court handling this matter. The group says, "It has already been well documented that there is a high failure rate for the DePuy ASR hip implant, and we need to get every recipient identified as soon as possible, in order to try to get them some help, that includes the best possible attorneys." They say, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
Important Update from the US Drug Watchdog: On April 2, 2012, the U.K.'s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency ("MHRA") called for a ban on combining certain metal-on-metal hip replacement parts. The US Drug Watchdog says, "Where is the once again worthless US FDA. We are being flooded with calls from recipients of failed metal-on-metal hip implants, that are not just limited to the recalled DePuy ASR. Why does the US FDA lag behind the European's when it comes to vital medical device, or pharmaceutical recalls by typically a year, or more?"
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier defective medical device, or recalled pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all ASR DePuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients-period."
