DePuy LPS Limb Preservation System - Surgical Technique

Significant bone loss requiring extensive reconstruction around the hip and knee is often required following the treatment of malignant bone tumors, aggressive benign bone tumors, infection, multiple revised and failed joint replacements and massive trauma, particularly in the elderly osteoporotic patient. Limb-sparing techniques, using modular segmental endoprostheses, provide a reliable, functional reconstruction for these patients.
