New DePuy Knee Sleeve Lawsuit Allegations Information Center for Consumers Announced by Resource4thePeople
Date:7/19/2013

cturer 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 issued the Class 1 Recall of the DePuy Orthopaedics LPS Diaphyseal Knee Sleeve in an urgent notification to health care professionals and consumers.

The FDA in the announcement describes Class I Recalls as the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.

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.

The FDA said it acted after receiving 10 reports (6 fractures and 4 reports of loosening that may or may not be attributed to the same device design issue) of incidents in which the device has malfunctioned.

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.

Resource4thePeople attorneys are investigating the following side effects that DePuy has identified as adverse events in connection with the use of the DePuy knee sleeve with the DePuy Limb Preservation System:**

"Some of the most common adverse events associated with the device include a change in the position of the components, loosening, bending, cracking, fracture, deformation or wear of components, fatigue fractions, infection, tissue reaction to wear debris, pain, dislocation, decreased range of motion and loss of limb."
