The DePuy Synthes 4.5mm VA-LCP Curved Condylar Plate is a locking compression plate used to treat distal femur fractures, a type of fracture that occurs where the thighbone flares out just above the knee.
Distal femur fractures are extremely difficult to treat, in part because of the curved shape of the femur where it joins with the knee. This part of the thighbone often shatters into multiple pieces when it breaks, adding to the complexity of treatment.
The DePuy Synthes 4.5mm VA-LCP Curved Condylar Plate is made of stainless steel and titanium alloy. A series of predrilled holes line the length of the plate. During surgery, the plate is attached to the femur to hold the broken bones in place as they heal.
Unfortunately, a growing number of reports from both researchers and healthcare providers suggest that the VA-LCP Curved Condylar Plate may be associated with a high rate of premature failure and breakage. For example:
The consequences of DePuy Synthes VA-LCP Curved Condylar Plate failure are serious and may result in:
Patients who experience failure of the device will need to undergo revision surgery to repair and replace the implant.
