  • Causa
    Stryker has determined that a laser marking machine used to create the distance markings on the tip of the thoracic pedicle feeler has settings higher than those intended. this change leads to an increased energy being directed onto the tip of the thoracic pedicle feeler, causing material degradation where the laser marks exist.There is the potential for the tip of the thoracic pedicle feeler to break during use. if this occurs within the patient, migration of the broken tip could result in soft tissue or peripheral nerve injury requiring surgical intervention.
  • Acción
    Stryker is advising users to quarantine any affected product and contact their local Stryker representative to coordinate the return and replacement of affected product.
