Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The Spectra System/Legacy Guided Surgery Handle Kit had guided handle inserts that were out of Implant Direct specifications, from the results of complaints submitted by clinicians regarding the 3.4mm guide insert that will not allow the 3.4 drill to pass through, since the diameter is too small. In addition, the 2.3mm guide was too large.
