What is the DePuy LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve?

The DePuy LPS Diaphyseal Sleeve is a medical device. It allows surgeons to reconstruct severe soft tissue and bone defects found as they perform knee reconstruction surgery. “LPS” in the device’s name stands for “limb preservation system.” The diaphysis is the midsection of a long bone. A diaphyseal sleeve is inserted to support the diaphyseal femoral canal (an interior portion of the leg bone) in procedures that require reconstruction of parts of the femur and tibia.
