Manufacturer Narrative
Evaluation revealed the target device gamma3 to be the subject product. No further associated products were reported. A review of the inspection records revealed no discrepancies. The item returned was documented as faultless prior to distribution. During investigation no material, design or manufacturing related issues were found. As the target device had been in use for a longer time (manufactured in march 2010), we pre-suppose that the device had fulfilled its tasks in former surgeries as intended. Dimensional examination of the groove in which the c-ring was located, revealed no discrepancies. Previous complaints are known reporting a detached c-ring. In those previous cases a contribution by the design could not be excluded. Therefore a design change of the c-ring was implemented by ecn 6197/07 (see photos [5] + [6]). Internal tests confirmed the effectiveness of the new design. The new design does not prevent a c-ring detachment by 100% (i. E. In case of rough handling), but makes a detachment of the ring more difficult. The complained device was recognized as new design version; manufacturing post-dates the implementation of the design change. Since the missing c-ring could not be provided for evaluation, a physical examination of the unit was not possible. It cannot be excluded that the missing c-ring was detached prior to the surgery during the cleaning process to achieve a proper cleaning result with the target device. During detachment the ring may have been deformed which may have affected the secure fit of the ring (loosening). A missing clamping ring does not affect the targeting accuracy of the target device, because the accuracy is ensured by the nail holding screw. The clamping ring is just a feature to ease the attachment of the nail at the reception of the target device. According to the implant ifu a final check with the image intensifier is required. It was not determined why the detached ring was not identified during that procedure ¿ preventing an additional surgery. It was rather detected during post-op follow-up some days later. Review of complaint history, capa databases and risk analysis did not identify any conspicuity. The review of the risk assessment for the failure mode indicated the issue was addressed adequately. There are no open actions in place related to the reported event for the subject product. No non-conformity was identified.
