DePuy LPS Lower Extremity Dovetail Intercalary Component Injuries

Manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, the Lower Extremity Dovetail Intercalary Component is a potentially defective medical device used to replace either portions of or the entire femur (thigh bone). Most patients implanted with the DePuy LPS Lower Extremity Dovetail Intercalary Component have suffered extensive damage to their femurs as a result of infections, tumors, or trauma. The device is composed of four cylinders (two “male” and two “female”) that fit together in a dovetail and are held into place by two pins in the thigh bone.

Unfortunately, it has been determined that patients may suffer serious injuries when the device can fracture at the dovetail where the female and male components meet. DePuy LPS Lower Extremity Dovetail Intercalary Component may include:
