  • Causa
    In the ct systems above, sixteen bolts secure j-brackets which support the carbon table top to the couch subframe. philips healthcare received two complaints stating that the bolt heads of several of these sixteen bolts had broken off., a risk of serious injury (bone fracture, head injury, concussion) was identified in the event that all sixteen (16) bolts are broken. if this occurs, and the carbon table top is extended, the table top may tilt or tip over, or it may result in unintended pivotal motion of the table. if the patient is not secured to the table, there is a possibility the patient may slide off, which may cause serious injury. if less than sixteen (16) of the j-bracket bolts fail, the carbon table top will remain attached to the couch subframe.
