Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The firm discovered that the current Personal Tibial/General Fixed Bracket Trays may not have the specific geometry to accommodate the tibial drill and stop guide with proper position/orientation. The drill bracket and drill guide are not the correct geometry to allow for a proper fit in the Persona Fixed Case Kit which could lead to improper sterilization of the tibial drill and stop guide.
