Irish Man Plans to File Suit Over Failed DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant

Another hip replacement patient is suing DePuy Orthopaedics, this time, an Irish man plans to file a lawsuit over a failed metal-on-metal version of the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. DePuy Orthopaedics is a unit of drug and device giant, Johnson & Johnson.

Austin Willis, 51, is the first person in Northern Ireland to sue a major medical device firm over a potentially defective implant, said The Belfast Telegraph. Willis had to endure a second hip replacement surgery two years after his original implant failed. In February 2009 Willis received his all-metal hip. “I was in agony for four months after the surgery,” he told The Belfast Telegraph. Less than one year after surgery, Willis was diagnosed with an infection and the implant had to be replaced. Last February, Willis underwent revision surgery and was implanted with a ceramic-on-ceramic hip. “I feel for anybody who’s older and had to go through a hip operation twice because of that,” Willis added, said The Belfast Telegraph.

FDA Says Yaz, Yasmin May Raise Blood Clot Risk

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) says that Yaz and Yasmin may raise blood clot risks. The controversial, newer generation birth control pills are made by Bayer.

The revised labeling will stress that the drugs may be likelier to lead to blood clots versus older contraceptive pills. Yaz, Yasmin, and other drospirenone-containing birth control pills have enjoyed popularity over claims they clear up acne and other hormone-related symptoms, note the AP. (more…)
