  • Causa
    Specific lots of tension band pins manufactured between july 2009 and march 2011 are being recalled because they were manufactured with astm f138 stainless steel but should have been manufactured with astm a276 stainless steel. both standards are grade 316l stainless steel and contain the exact same chemical elements but in different concentrations. although the biocompatibility was only tested on astm f138 there is no evidence to indicate that astm a276 is not biocompatible.
