Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The markings on the distal face of the instruments are mis-oriented by 180¿. This includes Anterior and Posterior, which the surgeon uses to correctly place the cut block on the resectioned face of the femur. The cut block is not symmetric, so correct orientation of the instrument in the A/P direction is critical to making proper anterior, posterior, and chamfer cuts to fit the femoral implant.
