(PRWEB) June 26, 2013
The US Drug Watchdog says, "Only a fraction of the 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients in the US have been identified by the federal court handling a case related to premature failures with this particular hip implant device. Because of this we are urging all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to call us, so we can provide them with information about a specific blood test designed to measure cobalt, and chromium in a all metal hip implant recipient's blood stream. If the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium it is a very good indicator for a all metal hip implant failure. We do not want one DePuy Pinnacle recipient left holding the financial bag for an expensive hip revision surgery, and post operative therapy, so we are urging all recipients to call us now, while there is still time to get identified." The US Drug Watchdog's DePuy Pinnacle Blood Test Initiative is nationwide, and is focused on identifying recipients in all states including California, Texas, Florida, New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, New Jersey, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. For more information recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466.
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 Pinnacle hip implant recipients get a blood test to determine if their hip implant has failed. In the event the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium we will get the recipient to national caliber law firms that have a superior record in representing their clients in these types of national lawsuits, involving potentially significant financial compensation."
