Burg Simpson is currently investigating reported problems with the DePuy Pinnacle ® hip replacement system. The DePuy Pinnacle ® hip replacement comprises a modular acetabular cup with a cup liner made of either polyethylene or metal. Femoral head options used in this device are ceramic or metal, with Metal-on-Metal (MoM) combinations used frequently.
A significant number of DePuy Pinnacle MoM hips appear to have required early revision. As with the DePuy ASR ® , the primary issues in failure appear to be cup loosening and metallosis. DePuy Pinnacle ® cases are being transferred to MDL 2244, pending in the Northern District of Texas.
If you or a loved one has experienced serious pain or required corrective surgery following a DePuy Pinnacle ® implant, you may be entitled to compensation. Our award-winning medical device attorneys would be happy to review your records to determine whether you have a viable case against DePuy Orthopaedic Inc.
