DePuy Knee Sleeve Lawsuits Help: Resource4thePeople Expands Recall Reviews to include both Knee and Hip Cases
Date:9/6/2013

r Recall” about the knee sleeve warned that health complications as drastic as death could occur if the device malfunctions.

“The LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve to Diaphyseal Sleeve Base taper connection may not be sufficient to accommodate potential physiologic loads that may be transferred to the junction during normal gait activities by some patients,” the FDA said in its warning.

“This may result in fracture of the sleeve at the taper joint which may also lead to loss of function or loss of limb, infection, compromised soft tissue or death.”

Resource4thePeople notes that the Class 1 Recall of the DePuy knee sleeves is the most serious type of recall by FDA regulators and patients who may have suffered these dangerous side effects should fully inform themselves about what legal rights they may have to seek compensation in this situation.

The consultations may provide consumers with information about the legal options they may be entitled to in seeking compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, loss of wages and other costs that may have been incurred.

The DePuy Orthopaedics LPS Diaphyseal Knee Sleeve is described by the manufacturer as an end-stage revision knee device that has been used in numerous operations by surgeons who are reconstructing 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.

The FDA said in its announcement that the LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve to Diaphyseal Sleeve Base taper connection may not be sufficient to accommodate potential physiologic loads that may be transferred to the junction during normal gait activities by some patients.

DePuy has informed the FDA that the affected devices were manufactured from 2008 to July 20, 2012 and that it has recommended that hospitals and surgeons immediately stop distributing or using the recalled lots.
