The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "The Europeans are expecting a failure rate of 50% of metal on metal hip implants, and we are saying if you have a recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant we do not care if the device has failed yet or not. We are urging all recipients of either one of these metal on metal hip implant devices to call us so we can get you identified by the best possible attorneys." According to court records of the nearly 40,000+ recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, only about 4000 hip implant recipients have been identified-so far. With respect to the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant about 140,000 were surgically implanted between 2002 & 2010, and only about 2000 US recipients have been signed up so far. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "Tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations over the next decade to replace metal on metal hip implants." The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "Even if your DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device has not failed-yet, we are offering to help get you identified to the best possible attorneys, because we do not want metal-on-metal hip implant recipients left holding the bag financially three years from now."

The US Drug Watchdog now says, "The average DePuy Pinnacle, or DePuy ASR recipient we talk to is about 50 years old. We are rarely hearing from recipients in their mid to late 60's, or 70's? Our new big concern is because of age the older DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle recipients do not want to go through hip implant replacement surgery, also called revision surgery. We desperately need friends, and family members to help us get these recipients identified." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
