The US Drug Watchdog is calling their initiative DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient initiative vital, because according to court records 130,000 US citizens are recipients, and only a fraction have been identified by the Texas federal court handling the litigation. The US Drug Watchdog says, "There has been very little news publicity about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, and premature failures, and our big fear now is the time to get identified for what could be significant financial compensation will come, and go, because either the DePuy hip implant recipient never heard about premature hip implant failure issues, or they would rather live in pain than go through hip implant replacement surgery again.' In the hopes of dramatically changing the numbers of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients who might have a premature failure the US Drug Watchdog is urging recipients to call them about a very simple blood test that measures cobalt, and chromium levels in a all metal hip implant recipients blood stream. If the cobalt,, and chromium levels are elevated it probably indicates a failure. For more information individuals who have a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant are urged to contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466.
