  • Causa
    The affected part number and lot number is etched as dimension 13.5mm while the actual dimension is 14mm.If a 14mm reamer head is labelled and etched as a 13.5mm, there is the potential that the surgeon would be advancing 1.0mm versus 0.5mm; thus, there is a risk of the reamer head jamming. surgical delay could occur as the reamer head is removed from the medullary canal and bone debris is removed or the reamer head is replaced with another reamer head. there is also the potential for damage to the bone.
