  • Causa
    The issue concerns a mix up of two lots of ncb screws with different lengths but the same diameter (4mm). ncb screws with a length of 26mm were placed in the 32 mm packaging and vice versa. these trauma screws are delivered non sterile and are placed in the implant rack and sterilized before use. as a general practice, screw length is checked before placing the screw into the right place of the implant rack (figure 1). this is done using a template which is incorporated into the rack itself. during the surgery, when picking a screw, the nurse checks the length of screw once again using the same template.
