Reason For Recall DePuy Orthopaedics has identified the potential for holes to develop in the inner and outer flexible pouches that form the sterile barrier for S-ROMĀ® Noiles Rotating Hinge Femur with Pin devices. The outer carton and shrink wrap are intact. A package redesign is underway to resolve this issue. S-ROM Noiles Rotating Hinge Femur with Pin devices will remain in US Distributors inventory during the packaging redesign because all units within recalled lots may not be affected. In addition, pre-implantation inspection of the implants packaging will allow the surgeon to determine whether there are any breaches in the packaging of individual S-ROM Noiles Rotating Hinge Femur with Pin devices. Implants with intact packaging may be used as intended.
