To date, no recall has been made on this product, but many experts believe a recall will be issued on the Pinnacle Hip model, most likely after the ASR litigation has concluded. DePuy has implanted over 100,000 Pinnacle Hip Models worldwide. Victims who have elevated chromium and cobalt levels in their blood, have already had a revision surgery, or are having issues with their Pinnacle hip should seek immediate legal counsel.
Currently, the Pinnacle Hip model is the basis of the federal Multi District Litigation MDL 2244 (In Re Depuy Othopaedics, Inc., Pinnacle Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation) pending in Dallas, Texas. If you have been implanted with the Pinnacle Hip, you may qualify to file into the Pinnacle MDL, no matter where you are located.
