  • Causa
    The packaging for the selected part and lot numbers of the guide wire ø 3.2 mm, length 400 mm were mislabelled with an incorrect material. the label incorrectly declares 'molybdenum' instead of wolfram and nickel as alloyed elements. the correct label should indicate “cocrwni alloy”. during the normal course of the surgery, the risk of adverse tissue reaction is decreased as the guide wire is not retained in the body after the procedure is completed. in the case of a broken guide wire, a fragment may be retained after surgery. in this case, a patient with sensitivity to nickel could develop a moderate adverse tissue reaction.
  • Acción
    Customers are advised to immediately isolate the affected stock for returning to Synthes Australia.
