Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because a hip implant failure, or hip replacement surgery is such a huge ordeal, we want to hear from every recipient of a metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, out of fear their device has started to fail, or victims may not know the warning signs of a failure. Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility." According to the New York Times, "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, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We urgently need family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2005, and 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. We could easily have tens of thousands of US DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims, living each day in pain, with a failed hip implant. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims identified, to the best possible national caliber attorneys, and we will help with the process."

Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The symptoms of DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, swelling in the area of the hip implant, lack of flexibility, or loss of mobility. Because DePuy Pinnacle hip implants were surgically installed on well over 100,000 US citizens, and because numerous studies are pointing to increased failure rates with all metal-on-metal hip implants, we are doing every thing possible to get every victim of a metal on metal hip implant failure identified, so we can make sure the get to the best possible attorneys. Because living with a failed hip implant, and or hip implant replacement surgery, also known as revision surgery are such traumatic events, we are very focused on victim compensation, when it comes to any type of metal-on-metal hip implant failure, including the DePuy Pinnacle." 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." The US Drug Watchdog says, "The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, and we think it is vital that every DePuy Pinnacle recipient understand the warning signs of a failure. At the same time we want to get every failed metal on metal hip implant victim identified. If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy Pinnacle, the now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or any other metal on metal hip implant device that has failed please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
