  • Causa
    The manufacturer, limacorporate has received two complaints about the allen wrench. firstly, the impossibility to connect the allen wrench to the t-handle intra-operatively. secondly, after a difficult insertion, it was impossible to remove the allen wrench from the t-handle. in both cases, there were no reported consequences for the patients. limacorporate's investigations have shown that the diameter of the zimmer connection on the allen wrench has been manufactured out of specification and is over-dimensioned. this leads to difficult/impossible coupling between the allen wrench and the t-handles.
  • Acción
    Lima Orthopaedics' kit coordinator will be visiting hospitals and replacing affected devices in the SMR instrument sets with unaffected devices. This action has been closed-out on 20/02/2017.
