Manufacturer Narrative
The reason for this revision surgery was due to an ulnar periprosthetic fracture. The original surgery date was not provided or could be established, so the in-vivo length of service cannot be determined. The complaint reports no issues of any other patient injuries, activities, accidents that may have been contributory to this surgery. No reported pre-existing patient health conditions. The complaint reported no surgical delays during the revision surgery. The surgery was completed as intended. The device was disposed of at the hospital and not made available to djo surgical for examination. A review of the device history record (dhr) was not conducted since a lot number was not provided or determined during the complaint evaluation. No additional information was obtained to assist in the event identification. As of 2-feb-2018, no records have been forwarded by zimmer-biomet concerning this event. Should zimmer-biomet provide additional information concerning this complaint, the complaint will be re-opened and a further review shall be conducted. The root cause of this complaint was a revision surgery due to a ulnar periprosthetic fracture. There are multiple factors that may contribute to an event that are outside of the control of djo surgical. Inventory containment is not required since there are no indications of a product or process issue affecting implant safety or effectiveness.
 
Event Description
Revision surgery - due to the patient suffering from an ulnar periprosthetic fracture, so a surgical intervention was required to prevent further damage to the patient. The original surgery was several years ago and we were provided very little information prior to the case.
