DePuy LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve Side Effects Lawsuit & Recall

The LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve is intended for use with the LPS system which is an end-stage revision knee replacement product that allows surgeons to reconstruct severe soft tissue and bony defects. The diaphyseal sleeve is intended to enhance the fit and fill of the diaphyseal femoral canal with femoral and tibial replacements.

On February 15, 2013 the FDA announced a class I recall of the DePuy Orthopaedics LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve that was manufactured from 2008 to July 20, 2012, after they received reports of knee replacement side effects such as fractures and loosening of the device. The Knee device was found to be insufficient for loads possibly transferred to the junction during normal gain in some patients. If a fracture of the knee replacement device does occur it could result in loss of function, loss of limb, compromised soft tissue and even death.

At this time DePuy is not recommending revision or follow up in the absence of symptoms in patients with the implanted knee device. Although they are not recommending revision surgery DePuy is encouraging surgeons to communicate with patients who received these knee replacement implants and discuss the risks of the knee replacement fracturing and what symptoms to look for.

On January 4, 2013 DePuy issued an urgent medical device recall for this same knee device. In DePuy's January recall notice they requested that hospitals and doctors stop using the recalled lots of the knee implants. The recalled lots had the following product codes:

  • 1987-20-018
  • 1987-20-020
  • 1987-20-024
  • 1987-20-028

Class I recalls are the most serious type of recall and is used only in situations where there is a high probability that use of these products will cause serious health consequences or death.
