This metal on metal hip disaster is much worse than anyone outside of the US FDA knows, and we are not going to back down on this issue-where are the recalls?
(PRWEB) April 27, 2012
The US Drug Watchdog is mocking the US Food And Drug Administration for their failure to protect US citizens, who have a metal on metal hip implant device. While one specific type of metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy ASR has been recalled, the US Drug Watchdog is now certain there will be many more recalls of metal-on-metal hip implants, because of the high probability of failure. 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 US Drug Watchdog has completely redesigned their web site, and now offers a listing of all metal-on-metal hip implant makers. They are encouraging any metal-on-metal hip implant recipient who has had a device failure to contact them with the specifics. In order to make certain all metal-on-metal hip implant recipients with a failed hip implant get to the best possible attorneys, or legal experts, the US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient, if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure. Symptoms include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the hip implant, or loss of mobility, on the part of the metal-on-metal hip implant recipient. Victims are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via the web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com
Note From The US Drug Watchdog to the US Congress: "If taxpayers are shocked with wasteful GSA employees, and their frivolous conventions, and or the US Secret Service, and Columbian hookers, there really should be a serious investigation of FDA panelists, that sit on drug, or medical device review panels. It should be illegal for a FDA panelist to go back to work for a drug maker, or a medical device maker for at least 10 years, so as to avoid conflicts of interest. This metal on metal hip disaster is much worse than anyone outside of the US FDA knows, and we are not going to back down on this issue-where are the recalls?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device, or recalled drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one, who is a recipient of a metal-on-metal hip implant that has already failed, or is showing symptoms of a failure, such as swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility, or loss of mobility, please have them call us at 866-714-6466, so we can try to get them help." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
