The US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them For The Names Of The Best Law Firms-And Warns About A Possible August Deadline

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Of the nearly 40,000 DePuy recalled ASR metal on metal hip implants, only about 4000 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation. It is absolutely vital we get every DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified to the best possible attorneys because the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implants are failing, or have failed at an unacceptably high rate, and we want to get recipients identified even if their DePuy ASR has not yet failed. Our new worry is a possible deadline to have all recalled DePuy ASR recipients identified by mid August 2012." According to the New York Times, "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." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to make certain all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR get to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is vital when talking about the ordeal of a hip implant replacement, also known as revision surgery. If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

There are 500,000 US citizens who have a metal on metal hip implant. When we the US FDA step into provide meaningful leadership to the US metal on metal hip implant disaster

(PRWEB) August 03, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation, because of the approximately 40,000 devices out there, only about 4000 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court in Ohio that is handling the litigation. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some meaningful help in the form of legal representation with the focus being compensation for all recalled DePuy ASR recipients." The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August 2010. According to the New York Times, "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, "We fear there are tens of thousands of recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US who, because of age or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. We need to get these individuals identified, and we think we need family members to help us." For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are repeating it is not just the DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failures that have us extremely concerned. We are also hearing from recipients of the Smith and Nephew Birmingham hip device, along with recipients of BioMet Magnum, who have suffered failures, and again we are demanding answers from the US FAD. There are 500,000 US citizens who have a metal on metal hip implant. When we the US FDA step into provide meaningful leadership to the US metal on metal hip implant disaster?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt in a recipients blood stream

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients get to national caliber trial law firms or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, with the emphasis being compensation."
