Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The adhesive used to bond the casing of the device may have migrated to the staple driver. While the device still fires, it may result in audible and tactile feedback at the midpoint of the firing cycle which may be interpreted by some surgeons as a completed firing cycle, which may cause the surgeon to prematurely stop firing the device and result in incomplete staple formation or cut line.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
