Cobalt & Chromium Metal Toxicity Danger – Hip Recall Report Update!

Cobalt and Chromium Metal Toxicity Danger

It’s so easy to miss cobalt and chromium metal toxicity. The symptoms are subtle enough, initially, and they can easily be mistaken for something very different.

I mean, who isn’t tired and forgetful in this time of constant multi-tasking and long work hours? Who would attribute it to their artificial hip?

But that’s exactly what could be at fault! And if you have a metal-on-metal artificial hip replacement, you should go get checked by your doctor.

And because this issue is so important yet so easy to miss, we have updated our special report. The cover still looks the same, but the content now includes a big dose of info on metal toxicity and what to look out for and do about it.

So if you’re worried, get your free copy! Now if you aren’t worried, should you be? For the sake of yourself or a loved one?

Here’s the scoop:

Do you (or does a loved one) have a metal-on-metal implant?

Prime candidates are the recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implants and the Zimmer Durom Cup implants.

They have that metal-on-metal construction. It seemed a good idea at the time, no doubt, but unfortunately, that metal on metal friction caused tiny particles to come off and seep into the surrounding tissue, and into the blood stream. That’s bad.

Metal Toxicity – The Stealth Danger

What’s worse is that it’s not getting caught early on in a lot of cases. If the manufacturer of your hip implant has alerted you, that’s good. But if you moved and they lost track of you, you may have to take matters into your own hands.

It’s vitally important that you go see your doctor, whether you have symptoms or not. Metal toxicity doesn’t always have symptoms, and what symptoms it has, which include fatigue, nausea, memory issues, and other such things, don’t necessarily trigger a connection with the hip replacement implant.

So if you have an implant of the above variety, don’t wait.

And in the meanwhile, please be sure to get our report. Because if you have to have your hip replaced because of cobalt & chromium metal toxicity, you will want to get compensation.

Hip Replacement Recall 2011

Hip Replacement Recall 2011

Do I have my math wrong? This site is called Hip Replacement Recall 2010, and here’s a post about Hip Replacement Recall 2011.

What gives? Here’s the scoop:

Hip Replacement Recall 2011

To the best of my knowledge, there hasn’t been a NEW recall as of yet. Though I might have missed it. The most recently recalled hip implant was the DePuy ASR XL implant, and that was in 2010.

The Zimmer Durom Cup was recalled in 2008. And there is something that’s considered typical “Zimmer hip pain.”

The Stryker Trident recall was earlier still. If you’re affected by either of those, you should get legal advice fast. The recalls don’t have to have been in 2011 in oirder for you to be compensated this year. However, if you wait too long, you’re out of luck.

The real significance of Hip Recall 2011

The thing is that people had hip problems long before the above implants were recalled. In fact, they were recalled BECAUSE they were causing so many problems. So if you have a problem now, even if your implant is not on the recall list, you should still get help. You still might need to have it replaced. And you still might be eligible for compensation, recall or no recall.

VERY Important Piece of Advice

When you do have surgery, and have your hip implant replaced, insist that they preserve your hip implant and GIVE it to you.

Tell your surgeon NOT To send it back to the manufacturer. This hip implant can be crucial evidence in a potential compensation lawsuit and could make the difference between you getting fair compensation and getting nothing.

So don’t let anyone bully you into giving in if they say they don’t “usually” do that. Talk to your lawyer. Have them generate whatever paperwork they create to help things along. And get that implant!

What can you get compensated for?

If you believe you won’t get much money and it might not be worth it, think again.

If you’ve been injured by a faulty or defective medical device, you could get compensation (provided you’re represented by a good lawyer).

And here are just some of the things you can get compensation for:
Medical bills, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, future medical care, loss of wages, loss of quality of life, and much more. And that doesn’t even go to the punitive damages that can be many times the amount of those “normal” damages.

So what should you do?

Hip Replacement Recall Questions & Answers

If you are involved in a hip replacement recall, or maybe someone you love is dealing with a recalled hip implant, then you probably have lots of questions. So here are some of the most common questions (and the answers).

Hip Replacement Recall Questions

What is a Hip Replacement Recall?

As in other product recalls, a hip joint can be recalled if there is a question about its safety, if it has a higher than usual failure rate, or if it has been shown to harm people.

Unlike other product recalls, a hip replacement recall involves something that’s actually IMPLANTED inside someone’s body.

if your car’s brake system has been recalled, you can take your car to the shop and they’ll fix it. It’s scary, and it could have put you at risk, but getting it fixed is not terribly bothersome.

When implants of any kind are recalled, things are not so easy. And in the case of a hip replacement recall, whether it’s the DePuy, Zimmer, or Stryker, or another implant, it takes major surgery to replace the faulty or recalled implant.

Hip surgery takes a long rehabilitation period under the best of circumstances, but if you have to undergo “revision” surgery, it can take even longer to recover since there may have been some damage.

How do I know if my Hip Implant has been recalled?

In many cases, you will be notified by the manufacturer or the surgeon. However, this is not always the case, and in today’s overstuffed mailboxes, a letter can get lost as well.

Here are the main brands of implants that have been recently recalled:

Depuy ASR XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System
Zimmer Durom Cup
Stryker Trident Acetabular PSL Cup and the Trident Hemispherical Cups

However, if you have problems after hip surgery, ranging from pain, difficulty walking, weird noises, loose joings, and more, you should seek out help, both medical and legal help, even if your implant is not on the list.

Generally, implants are not recalled until months and even years after the first complaints surface. And by coming forward, you may help others avoid the trauma you’re going through.

You will also help preserve your rights (see below).

.

Why is time of the essence?

Some people ask us why it is so important to act quickly if they have problems with their hip joint?

There are several reasons for that. The most important one is the statute of limitations.

What does that mean? It means that there is a time limit for your ability to file a suit for compensation. If you miss the deadline, you’re simply out of luck, and no attorney will be able to help you.

The other reason is that the longer you wait, the more likely it is that important evidence could get lost, whether that’s medical record or physical evidence. So it’s very important to make sure to seek help and legal advice quickly.

Finally, as I mentioned above, it’s important because the sooner problems with an implant come to light, the sooner something will be done about it.

Needless to say, if you have problems with your hip joint, you don’t want to wait too long until you have it checked out. If you have a faulty hip joint that is causing damage, the damage will only increase if it’s left unattended. So if you’re involved in a hip replacement recall — or if it looks like you might be, take action quickly.
