Rottenstein Law Group Encouraged by Subpoena from Tennessee United States Attorney to Wright MedicalPR Web
New York (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
The ever-growing fiasco involving metal-on-metal hip replacement devices is now getting the attention of at least one State Attorneys office. According to the quarterly 10-Q report filed by Wright Medical Group, Inc., manufacturer of the Profemur hip replacement system: On August 3, 2012, the Company received a subpoena from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Tennessee requesting records and documentation relating to our PROFEMUR series of hip replacement devices. The subpoena covers the period from January 1, 2000 to August 2, 2012. The Company is in the process of collecting the responsive documents and responding to the subpoena.
Further, under the headline A Competitor's Recall of Modular Hip Stems Could Negatively Impact Sales of our PROFEMUR Modular Hip System, the 10-Q provides as follows: On July 6, 2012, Stryker [Corporation] announced the voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular neck hip stems citing risks including the potential for fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular neck junction. Although Stryker's recalled modular hip stems differ in design and material from our PROFEMUR modular neck hip stems, there is a risk that Stryker's recall and the resultant publicity could negatively impact sales of modular neck systems of other manufacturers, including our PROFEMUR system, even if the issues cited by Stryker are unique to Stryker products.
Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group, implores anyone with a friend or relative who has received a dangerous hip implant or other medical device to reach out to that person and recommend that he or she consult a physician immediately and then speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer.
