  • Causa
    Smith & nephew has identified a labelling error with specific models and batches of thin and radial osteotome blades. the expiration dates on the label exceed the actual validated expiration date of the outer sterile barrier packaging. affected devices have expiration dates based on a 10 year packaging shelf-life where the actual validated shelf life of the outer pouch packaging is 5 years. this could potentially result in the outside of the inner tray packaging being non-sterile, potentially contaminating the sterile field.The inner tray packaging is validated for a 10 year shelf-life and to date no adverse events have been associated with this issue.
