Event Description
It was reported that the device was being used on a shoulder arthroscopy. While being used, the handpiece and device(while attached) created a loud noise and the staff were able to confirm that the shaver had fragmented, leaving shavings in the patients joint. Micro shavings are still present as it was cleaned out as much as possible. No x-ray was taken. The shavings were visible through the scope video. There was no patient harm or consequences.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
The device was returned to the manufacturer with heavy contaminants present as well as damage present to the device. A portion of the distal opening in the outer sub-assembly has been broken off. The device likewise fails the spin/drop test with definitive metal on metal contact being detected as the inner is rotated within the outer. The root cause for the damage is linked to the use of the device in the field. Per the account the device emitted a loud noise during use, which may have been linked to excessive pressure being placed on the device during its use.
