Product The Stryker Thoracic Pedicle Feeler 6002-350-000 is a smart instrument for remote control of
the navigation software and creation of a pathway into the pedicle. The instrument has three
types of buttons to remotely control the software: the UP, DOWN and SELECT buttons. The
Pedicle Feeler is laser marked in 10 mm intervals to help indicate the depth in which the feeler
tip has been inserted into the pedicle. Next to the navigational information, these depth
indicators on the feeler tip are also helpful in determining the appropriate pedicle screw length.

Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Stryker Instruments and Stryker Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG are voluntarily recalling certain serial numbers Thoracic Pedicle Feelers that are used in conjunction with the Stryker¿ Navigation System because the settings on the machine were higher than intended. This change led to increased energy directed onto the tip of the Thoracic Pedicle Feeler which caused material degradation where the laser marks exist. There is the potential for the tip of the Thoracic Pedicle Feeler to break.
