  • Causa
    Following a customer complaint about the e.To.I.L.E extension table, an analysis of the device showed a failure due to an abnormal wear in the locking system of the external rotation. a failure of the rotation locking mechanism would mean that the rotation of the leg would not be able to be maintained and may have the following consequences:- an increase in the surgery timeline if the incident occurs at the beginning of the surgery.- a risk of injury for the patient if the incident occurs during surgery.There have been no reported patient injuries. as a precautionary measure, amplitude decided to set up a preventive maintenance on all the e.T.O.I.L.E systems on the market.
  • Acción
    Amplitude is arranging for the return of all devices for preventative maintenance. Replacement devices will be provided as necessary.
