The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have heard from many DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients, who have had a failure. In one instance the individual was a 36 year old man, he was an athlete, and in now lives in contact extreme pain. Because DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implants were surgically installed on over 130,000 US citizens, and because numerous studies are pointing to increased failure rates with all metal-on-metal hip implants, we are doing everything possible to get every DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient identified now, so we can ensure they get to the best possible attorneys, out of fear their device might prematurely fail in the near future." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "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 want to get every DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient identified just in case the device fails in the future. If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy Pinnacle please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
