  • Causa
    Johnson & johnson medical pty. ltd. (jjm) is issuing a recall for all lots of the depuy synthes socket, hexagonal ø 4.0mm/11.0mm. the socket is a cannulated instrument used to insert the end caps in the proximal femoral nail anti-rotation (pfna), pfna-ii, and the antegrade femoral nail (afn). there is a potential for the socket-hex tip to break into fragments during use if too much force is applied.As the affected item has been reported to break intra-operatively, there is potential for surgical delay while the fragments are retrieved. consequently, surgical delay may occur while a replacement instrument or alternative device is located to insert the end cap. in addition, an adverse tissue reaction may possibly occur if any stainless steel fragments from the socket are not retrieved from the patient.
