  • Causa
    Johnson & johnson medical pty. ltd. (jjm) is issuing a medical device recall of certain lots of the depuy synthes sciatic nerve retractors, which are found in the 3.5mm low profile pelvic system. please note that there is no replacement for these products available at this time. micropores may form on the hollow handle of the sciatic nerve retractor during the manufacturing process that are large enough to allow fluids to enter and exit the hollow handle.Even with diligent reprocessing/sterilization of the retractor, subsequent patient(s) may be at risk for infection and adverse tissue reaction due to retained fluids leaking out during use. in the event that the liquid and/or discoloration is not identified preoperatively and enters the operative theatre, there is the potential for surgical delay while a replacement or alternate retractor is requesteda surgical delay may also occur.
