  • Causa
    Upon evaluation, depuy synthes discovered that certain lots of the screw inserter may potentially be etched with an incorrect graphic. the orientation of the etched image of the oblique angle on the screw inserter may be reversed which does not correspond to the tip of the angle of the instrument. this could result in the oblique cut at the lateral end of the screw being at a 90 degree angle to the lateral cortex.It is possible that the user would identify the final lateral oblique angle is not in the desired position, which could result in repositioning the screw within the nail so that the oblique angle of the screw is flush with the bone. the screw is designed to go in either orientation to allow proper depth placement of screw which is a critical factor for the success of the implant.
