  • Causa
    Johnson and johnson has identified the potential for micropores to form on the hollow handle of the sciatic nerve retractor. the pores may increase in size, allowing fluid to enter the hollow handle. discoloration and moisture were identified within the packaging of the affected lots of sciatic nerve retractors indicating that these pores may be present in the affected devices.Even with diligent reprocessing/sterilisation of the retractor, subsequent patients may be at risk for infection and adverse tissue reaction due to retained fluids leaking out during use.
