  • Causa
    Lima orthopaedics has received complains about the intra-operative breakage of the glenosphere impactors/extractors.The breakage occurs at a location corresponding to the threaded section which is screwed into the glenosphere before impacting the glenosphere into the metal back glenoid through the connector.If the reported issue occurs during surgery, it may result in a slight prolongation of the surgical time. although unlikely, in a worst case scenario, the surgeon would be unable to remove the broken thread from the glenosphere cavity nor be able to remove and replace the glenosphere, therefore the broken tip would remain in the patient.
