While a recall has not been issued, the FDA has received numerous DePuy Pinnacle complaints from patients who were implanted with the metal-on-metal Acetabular cup system. The DePuy Pinnacle complaints cited problems similar to those experienced by individuals implanted with the ASR implants, which were withdrawn from the market in an August 2010 DePuy hip implant recall. Patients implanted with the DePuy Pinnacle device complained of hip implant failure, metal poisoning, pain and dislocation, with several of these individuals requiring revision surgery to treat the complications.
