The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have one very big worry for the recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle hip metal on metal hip implant implant-not enough people have been identified by the federal court handling this case, and time to get identified by the court is not open ended." According to court records less than 10% of the 130,000 US citizens who are recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant have been identified by the court handling the national litigation over premature failure issues, so the US Drug Watchdog is urging all recipients, who have not yet been identified by the court to call them, so they carefully explain the specifics about a blood test that has been designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in a recipients blood. The US Drug Watchdog does not want any recipient left on the curb with the tab for an expensive metal on metal hip implant replacement, so they are urging DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients to call to call them for this vital blood test information. For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466.
According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, lack of flexibility, or elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the recipients blood." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

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.
