  • Causa
    Johnson & johnson medical pty ltd (jjm) has identified that the metal pin bushing was incorrectly assembled during the manufacturing process in some instruments. jjm has also determined that if the metal pin bushing is overloaded by over tightening, there is the potential for partial or full displacement of the metal pin bushing along with fracture of the plastic around the metal pin bushing. if the plastic around the metal pin bushing fractures, there is the potential for fragments of the fractured plastic to be left in the patient. this displacement is potentially caused by excessive loading applied during pinning of the jig to the distal femoral condyles. the use of the pins in the distal resection plate is optional and the complaint rate of the bushings partially or fully displacing is 0.018%.
