  • Causa
    The manufacturer pro med instruments (pmi) has been made aware of two breakages of the doro sterile disposable skull pins at the tip, which occurred during two surgical procedures. the breakages occurred at the very distal end of the conical part of the skull pin tip. these breakages did not cause any injury to the patient and pmi have not, to date, been made aware of any further adverse events.In a worst case scenario, this issue could lead to slippage which may require remedial action, loosening of the positioning and a delay in surgical procedure or the tip remaining in the skull, which could lead to subsequent complications such as wound healing.
