The US Drug Watchdog beleives the scope of the US metal on metal hip implant disaster began to be revealed in 2010 when DePuy recalled its ASR XL Acetabular System. Of this specific recalled metal on metal hip implant there are nearly 40,000 US recipients alone. According to the New York Times, "By adding in the DePuy ASR, and a half a dozen other US metal on metal hip implant makers there are over 500,000 US citizens with a all metal hip implant." The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "We have heard the Europeans are on the verge of requiring annual blood testing for all metal on metal hip implant recipients, and we have concluded the best way for a US recipient of a metal on metal hip implant to determine if their hip implant device has failed-is to have a simple blood test to see if their blood contains elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium. If the blood work reveals elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the metal on metal hip implant recipient's blood we want them to call us immediately, so we can direct them to the best possible law firms." US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com.
Important Note From The US Drug Watchdog; "We do not care if your metal on metal hip implant has failed yet or not. If you have a metal on metal hip implant that was surgically installed anytime after 2001, please start getting annual blood tests for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium. Because we believe there will be a 50% or better failure rate with metal on metal hip implants, we also believe it is vital all recipients get identified to the best possible attorneys out of fear of a premature failure, and we will help locate the best possible attorneys, or law firms for all US metal on metal hip implant recipients." 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 please share this press release with them. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com
