Action On September 16, 2015 Materialise NV identified four cases where not all available image sets were used to design the case. On September 18, 2015, prior to the surgery dates Materialise informed (phone call) the Signature Services Manager of Zimmer Biomet that inaccuracies in the alignment of the knee might be observed with the use of the guides due to this issue. Biomet was asked to segregate the packages for these four cases and to return them to the Materialise US office. On September 23, 2015 this was followed up by e-mail notification letter with response forms.
