  • Acción
    An Urgent Medical Device Recall notification letter dated 5/8/17 will be sent to customers to inform them that as a result of discussions with the FDA regarding a related recall of Arsenal Set Screw part number 47127, Alphatec Spine has made the decision to recall the original Arsenal Set Screw part number 47027. This action will remove all remaining pieces of part number 47027 from the domestic (U.S.) market and the Japan market. Arsenal set screw part number 47127 was recalled in September 2016. Arsenal set screw part number 4 7027 was not included in the recall because the complaints associated with 47027 were within acceptable safety limits and remains so presently. Alphatec has received eight (8) complaints for disengagement of set screw 47027 since the product was introduced to the market on June 14, 2014, which equates to a disengagement failure rate for P/N 47027 of 0.095%. Customers are informed of the actions to be taken. Customers are instructed to fill out the last page of recall letter to confirm that you have read this notification and have taken all necessary actions as described in this notification.
