DePuy Orthopaedics issues Class 2 recall for femoral implants: 4 observations

Spinal Tech

DePuy Orthopaedics has issued a Class 2 recall for various sizes of its LCS COMPLETE RPS Femoral Implants.

Here are four observations:


1. The implants are knee prosthesis components for orthopedic surgery.


2. DePuy Orthopaedics is recalling the implants because they have higher rates of revision in Australia when the native patella is not resurfaced when compared to other unresurfaced PS implants.


3. If the system is implanted and the native patella is not resurfaced, the patient may experience patello-femoral pain, and may potentially require a secondary procedure.


4. The system has been distributed in countries worldwide, including China, Belgium, France, Australia and South Africa.
