DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation. DePuy Orthopaedics' Pinnacle Ultamet hip implant system is a so-called "metal-on-metal" system, in which the femoral head, made of a cobalt and chromium alloy, rotates within an acetabular cup or shell made from the same alloy. In most hip replacement systems, the acetabular cup has a plastic liner, which prevents any "metal-on-metal" contact between the femoral head and the acetabular cup.

As a result of this contact, and the resulting wear, patients implanted with the Pinnacle Ultamet frequently develop toxic levels of cobalt and chromium, causing pain, death of the surrounding tissue, pseudotumors, and other serious complications. Himmelstein Law Network represents recipients of the Pinnacle Ultamet hip implant system, in In re DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implants Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244. If you received a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, it is important that you consult an attorney as soon as possible to preserve your right to seek compensation for your injuries.

Patients implanted with the M2a Magnum frequently develop toxic levels of cobalt and chromium, causing pain, death of the surrounding tissue, pseudotumors, and other serious complications. Himmelstein Law Network represents recipients of the Biomet M2a Magnum hip implant system, in In re Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2391. If you received a Biomet M2a Magnum hip implant, it is important that you consult an attorney as soon as possible to preserve your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
