Manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, the Pinnacle Acetabular Cup System (ACS) utilizes a metal on metal weight bearing design that has performed poorly in a number of patients who have reported problems with the implant to their surgeon and dePuy alike. Patient complaints include, but are not limited to: problems with walking and/or standing; total hip joint failure resulting in revisionist surgery; persistent and unexplained hip joint pain; implant instability or loosening, and metallosis (metal poisoning).
Hip replacement surgeons explain that the Pinnacle’s design is inherently flawed due to its metal on metal wear points that can cause the release of microscopic metal particles into a patient’s system. The introduction of these particles is potentially responsible for many reports of elevated patient levels of cobalt and chromium, which can cause metallosis. The chief symptoms of metal poisoning are painful inflammation and swelling of the hip joint, as well as moderate to severe mobility impairment. Disregarding all physician and patient complaints, DePuy insists its Pinnacle ACS hip replacement implant is without flaw. As a result, numerous and nationwide lawsuits against the company allege negligence in design, as well as knowingly issuing false representations to promote continued use of the device, thus risking additional and serious patient injuries.
