US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients To Get A Blood Test For Elevated Levels Of Cobalt Or Chromium and to Call Them If The Levels Are high

The US Drug Watchdog says,"We are now urging all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to start getting blood tests that are focused on cobalt, and chromium levels in your blood. If the cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated please call us immediately." As a background on metal on metal hip implants, according to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling all metal hip implant patients." The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, and the US Drug Watchdog wants to get every DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient identified-if their blood tests confirm elevated levels of cobalt, or Chromium. For more information DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients are encouraged to contact the US Drug watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

We are now urging all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to start getting blood tests that are focused on cobalt, and chromium levels in your blood

(PRWEB) December 04, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are now urging all DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients to start getting blood tests that are designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in your blood. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure victims identified, to the best possible national caliber attorneys, and we will help with the process. We do not want any metal on metal hip implant recipient left holding the bag for something that should have never been their problem." Some European health agencies are now suggesting a 50% failure rate with metal on metal hip implants. According to court records of the 500,000 US citizens who received a metal on metal hip implant from 2002 until 2011, about 140,000 are recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant. For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and or issues related to metal on metal hip implants please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle 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 metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, in these types of medical device lawsuits. Because compensation is vital, we think having the best, or most capable national caliber personal injury law firm is always the best choice."
