DePuy LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve Knee Implant Recall

April 4, 2014

In February the FDA officially announced a recall of the DePuy LPS (Limb Preservation System) Diaphyseal Sleeve knee implant. This product is used during the overall reconstructive knee surgery of the DePuy LPS knee system. The Diaphyseal Sleeve specifically is made by DePuy Orthopaedics which is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. The system is used to aid in reconstructing severe defects of the soft tissue and bones. One of the connections in the device has been seen to fracture and fail because it cannot handle the stress during normal walking. This fracturing and failure has been seen to result in infection, loss of the limb, soft tissue damage, and in some cases even death.

Legal Commentary
From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous victims and families who are victim to the dangerous or crippling effects of the DePuy LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve knee implant. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these problems because the implant, we encourage you to consult with one of our knee Implant attorneys as soon as possible. Although no amount of money can compensate for permanent physical damage, a successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will ensure the victims and their families are not burdened with costly medical expenses and will hopefully help compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work. Although no monetary amount can compensate for the death of a loved one, a successful claim could help the victims family pay for any final expenses and can lessen the burden during that trying time.
