Judge James Kinkeade has been selected to oversee the consolidated cases, which includes at least 57 actions filed against DePuy Orthopaedics. Future cases filed in federal court, or removed to federal court, will be transferred to the district court in Texas.

Concerns Mounting Over DePuy Pinnacle Acetabular Cup System

August 24, 2010

In August 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics announced a recall of the DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System and ASR™ XL Acetabular System. The devices are associated with a high failure rate that will require revisions for thousands of patients and have been the subject of substantial media coverage.

The DePuy Pinnacle® Acetabular Cup System has not garnered the same attention, but there is concern that the problems linked to the ASR™ system may extend to the Pinnacle® Acetabular Cup System, also manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc.

The DePuy Pinnacle® hip replacements, like the ASR devices, utilize a metal-on-metal design. There are reports that patients with Pinnacle® devices also are experiencing problems, including early failures, joint slippage and metal toxicity. The Journal of Arthroplasty urged doctors to use metal-on-metal hip devices with "great caution, if at all." Mayo Clinic has reduced its use of metal-on-metal implants by 80%.
