If a repair or remapping is impractical there could be another solution.

Since the artifact seems very narrow (maybe just one column of pixels?) a Photoshop Action should be able to average the dead pixels with a small range of adjacent vertical pixels. This Action could be a very selective cloning operation. I suspect it would be very rare for the final result to be inferior.

All you would have to do is automatically apply the Action to every DNG or JPEG during post-production.

An extra step in your workflow is inconvenient. But this could extend its useful life.
Basically, I mean, ah—well, let’s say that for me anyway when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the . . . contest between content and form.
