(b)(4).
 
Event Description
It was reported that, during trauma surgery, the surgeon was unable to unscrew a trigen 7/16 guide bolt and remove the alignment drill guide. Excessive force was used to loosen the trigen 7/16 guide bolt, which led to breakage of a trigen guide bolt wrench. The tip of the trigen guide bolt wrench got stuck inside the trigen 7/16 guide bolt. The issue was solved by drilling a hole through the trigen 7/16 guide bolt with a metal bur. The alignment guide was removed with a back-up guide bolt wrench. A significant delay was caused as consequence of this problem. No patient injury reported.
