  • Causa
    Based on complaints and follow-up investigations, cordis found that the sizes of the 5x200 mm and 6x200 mm cordis® smart® flex cord system (a total of four part numbers) are associated with an increase in incidents involving installation problems, compared to others sizes.   the most commonly mentioned mounting problem is the inability to install the mount, which leads to an extended intervention time due to the preparation of the replacement accessory. partial placement of the abutment may also lead to ischemia or internal bleeding, which would require additional intervention.   since the launch of this product in 2013, there have been a total of three reported cases of patient injuries worldwide related to complaints of placement problems (one case of insertion bleeding and two cases of thrombus formation), which are not likely due to the use of the device. however, we cannot exclude any causal link at this time.
