The US Drug Watchdog Now Offers To Help All Recipients Of Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Get To The Best Attorneys Because Time Could Run Out To Get Them Identified

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified to the best possible attorneys, because the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implants are failing or have failed at an unacceptably high rate. Because we could now be looking at a August 2012 deadline to get every DePuy ASR hip implant identified, we are urging recipients to call us-we do not want them left at the curb holding the bag on this mess." The ASR DePuy hip implants were surgically implanted on 40,000 US citizens between 2005 and early 2010. Tragically, only about 3400 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation over the DePuy ASR." According to the New York Times, "The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to make certain all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR get to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is vital when talking about the ordeal of a hip implant replacement, also known as revision surgery." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

It is vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation, because there could be a looming deadline of August 2012

(PRWEB) June 28, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation, because there could be a looming deadline of August 2012 to get all DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant recipients identified. The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August 2010." According to the New York Times, "There is no data on the number of all-metal hips that have failed prematurely in this country, but extrapolating from overseas data and the estimate of metal hip use here, tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations over the next decade." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear there are tens of thousands of recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US who, because of age or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some meaningful help in the form of legal representation with the focus being compensation." For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt in the recalled DePuy ASR recipients blood stream

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 ASR hip implant recipients get to national caliber trial law firms or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients, with the emphasis being compensation."
