Reason For Recall This removal is in response to complaints alleging that the Zimmer Air Dermatomes and Zimmer Air Dermatome II products would either not operate or operate intermittently.

This may cause a delay or postponement of the surgery or result in a suboptimal graft retrieval with potential of requiring an additional donor site.
