Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Applied Medical is conducting a voluntary recall on specific lot numbers of its Epix¿ and Direct Drive Laparoscopic Graspers. When the ratchet trigger is activated, if a great enough force is applied, there is a potential for the trigger to fracture and the jaws to remain in the closed position. The likelihood of this situation to occur and result in permanent patient injury is highly unlikely;
