  • Causa
    Complaints have been received which describe the synfix lr implant holder breaking at the interface between the implant and holder breaking at the interface between the implant and holder. if an unretrieved device fragment remains threaded into the plate, it will not be possible to properly attach the synfix aiming device to the implant (plate). proper attachment of the aiming device to the plate is required for accurate insertion of the four synfix screws into the synfix implant (plate) and vertebral bodies. if the tip of the implant holder should break, the potential exists for an unretrieved device fragment (urdf) to be left in the synfix-lr implant.
