  • Causa
    It has been determined that certain affected lots of non-conforming product may not be as sharp as intended by design.This may be evident during use by having to increase the applied force to the shaper needed to cut and form the humeral head effectively for the placement of the implant. this increase in force can in-turn, which could create undesirable friction between the shaper and the humeral head that could potentially result in bone tissue being burned.
