Rottenstein Law Group Applauds FDA Initiative to Investigate Hip Replacement Dangers

Thu, 19 Apr 2012 00:27:44 EST

(New York, NY, April 19, 2012) The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims stemming from the dangerous side effects of defective medical devices, is fully supportive of the efforts of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to study the dangers posed by metal-on-metal hip replacement implants.
According to a recent Reuters report, on June 27-28, the FDA will be consulting with an advisory panel of experts to re-evaluate metal-on-metal hip replacement implants. 'Though the FDA metal hip implant investigation is nothing new,' Reuters reports, 'it signals the agency may be ready to subject the devices to stricter scrutiny.'
After the August 2010 recall of 93,000 DePuy XL Acetabular metal-on-metal hip replacement devices, the FDA ordered manufacturers to collect more post-implant safety data. Since then, the FDA has been investigating the safety of metal hip implants and trying to decide if they should undergo more rigorous testing and premarket review. 'Evidence suggests that such review may be necessary. A recent study from the National Joint Registry of England and Wales found that 6 percent of people with metal hip replacements needed additional surgery,' Reuters reports. 'This is high when compared to the 1.7 to 2.4 percent rate found in individuals with ceramic or plastic hips.'
Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group, says, 'We implore anyone with a friend or relative who has received a hip replacement device since 2003 to reach out to that person and recommend that he or she consult a physician immediately and then speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer.'
The Rottenstein Law Group lawyers have a total of more than 25 years of experience fighting for the rights of clients who have suffered harm due to the negligence of powerful corporations.  Affected individuals can also stay apprised of the latest developments in the DePuy situation by visiting the DePuy  ASR Hip Replacement Lawsuit Information Center. The site is equipped with easy-to-use social media features which will enable users to spread the word about DePuy ASR hip replacement device failures.
