US Drug Watchdog Has Added Wright, Stryker, Biomet, and Zimmer To Their Initiative For All Metal Hip Implant Failures Victims & Offers Them The Names Of The Best Lawyers

The US Drug Watchdog is adding the Stryker Rejuvenate, the Biomet M2a Magnum, and Zimmer Durom Cup, and Wright Medical to their ongoing initiative to identify all recipients of a failed metal on metal hip implant. The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are 500,000 US citizens with all metal hip implants, and some reports out of Europe are suggesting failure rates of 50%. Our goal is to identify at least 250,000 plus US recipients of metal on metal hip implants to the best possible attorneys, because we will not stand by as hundreds of thousands of US citizens get left on the curb holding the bag for a problem that should not be their's." All US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

This initiative already includes the DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant

(PRWEB) December 05, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is now including the Stryker Rejuvenate, the Biomet M2a Magnum, Zimmer Durom Cup, and Wright Medical Technologies metal on metal hip implant devices to their ongoing initiative to identify all recipients of a metal on metal hip implant device that may have failed, or may prematurely fail in the future. This initiative already includes the DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any all metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, and the group will provide a metal on metal hip implant recipient with the names, and contacts of who they consider to be the best national caliber attorneys to help them. Recipients of any of the listed metal on metal hip implants are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via the web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant, loss of mobility, and elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood stream of the recipient. We think a blood test for cobalt, and or chromium levels is the best way for a metal on metal hip implant recipient to see if their device has failed." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

All Metal Hip Implant Device Makers That Are Now Sued Because Their Metal On Metal Hip Implant Prematurely Failed:

  • DePuy Pinnacle Case Number U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas MDL#2244
  • DePuy ASR Case Number Ohio Southern Federal District Court Case Number MDL No. 2197AAJ
  • Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Stem Failure Teleseminar: Metallosis with No Metal on Metal Articulation will address the issues surrounding the latest hip replacement systems recall. On July 6, 2012 Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems in the United States
  • Biomet M2a Magnum Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. (Case No. 3:12-cv-3476) filed on July 2nd 2012
  • Zimmer Durom Cup Product Liability mass tort litigation, MDL NO. 2158 (SDW), which is pending in the federal District Court in New Jersey (time frame 2006-July 2008)
  • Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation ("MDL No. 2329"). This is now pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia

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 that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, or are concerned about a premature failure please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
