  • Causa
    The kirschner wire is made from co35ni35cr20mo10 (mp35n) which is cobalt based alloy containing 35% nickel. however, the label and technique guide incorrectly indicate that the devices are made of stainless steel. the product is shipped with an insert which references the potential risk of allergy/hypersensitivity reactions, but there is no specific information on the label or in the technique guide with regards to the percentage of nickel content in the devices. although unlikely, there is a potential for surgeons to use the affected products on patients with a nickel allergy, which could lead to an allergic reaction. as mp35n is a more corrosion-resistant alloy and more biocompatible than stainless steel, the likelihood of a patient being exposed and sensitised to a higher amount of nickel or other alloys is low compared to a product manufactured from stainless steel.
