  • Causa
    The affected part and lot numbers of the 4.5mm cortex screws, length 20mm, may contain a 4.5mm cortex screw that is 22mm in length; the screws are both etched and labelled with the affected 20mm part numbers.The outside package labelling and the etching on the product would indicate to the user that the screw is 2mm shorter than its actual length of 22mm. if detected prior to insertion it may result in a surgical delay while a replacement is obtained or if the surgeon inserts the screw, determines it was the wrong length on radiographic imaging, and then removes and replaces it.In addition, the potential harm of damage to surrounding structures including damage to articular surface during insertion could occur, depending upon the location and angle of screw. a screw that is too long can also result in soft tissue damage (soft tissue irritation) if not recognised during the procedure. at this time there have been no reports of patient involvement.
