While a DePuy Pinnacle recall has not yet been issued, patients who have been implanted with the hip replacement system have reported a number of DePuy Pinnacle problems, including unexplained hip pain and hip implant failure, and allege that the company failed to warn them of these potential problems. Although the FDA has not announced a DePuy Pinnacle recall, patients experiencing DePuy Pinnacle problems may still have legal recourse.

Complaints

DePuy Orthopaedics has received numerous complaints regarding the metal-on-metal Pinnacle Acetabular Cup System, though it has not issued a Pinnacle hip recall as of yet. The company maintains that there is no defect in the design of the Pinnacle hip replacement, though one DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit alleges that the company is concealing the defect and has misrepresented that the hip replacement is a safe and effective medical device.

The following are among the potential DePuy Pinnacle problems when the device is used with a metal liner:

  • Unexplained hip pain
  • Difficulty walking or standing
  • Trouble with weight bearing
  • Clicking or snapping noise
  • Loosening of the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement
  • Pinnacle hip implant failure
  • Need for hip replacement revision surgery
  • Metallosis (metal poisoning)

Like the ASR hip replacements included in the 2010 DePuy hip implant recall, this Pinnacle system can be used with metal-on-metal components. Reportedly,metal-on-metal hip devices can wear, releasing microscopic particles into the patient’s body.

Some patients experiencing DePuy Pinnacle problems have reported severe inflammatory reactions or metal poisoning due to high levels of cobalt and chromium in their systems. Elevated levels of chromium and cobalt have been linked to the metal debris released by the metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip replacements. Metal poisoning symptoms in the patients were commonly associated with other problems, such as trouble walking, pain and swelling. This can also cause tissue and muscle damage, causing hip implant failure.
