Manufacturer Narrative
A device history record review was performed for the subject device part number: 02. 027. 035s, synthes lot number: l569648. Release to warehouse date: 15 sep 2017, expiry date: 01. Sep 2027. Manufacturing site: (b)(4). No ncrs were generated during production. Review of the device history record(s) showed that there were no issues during the manufacture of the product that would contribute to this complaint condition. A product development investigation was performed for the subject device: the returned pfna blade was examined and the complaint condition was able to be confirmed. The investigation has shown that the locking screw is too deep inside the blade and therefore the blade could not be locked. In addition, the hexagonal recess of the locking screw is severely damaged, it is clearly visible that the impactor was not positioned properly (see pictures attached). The sleeve of the blade shows normal signs of use. During the investigation the locking screw was screwed back into position with a standard hex-wrench and afterwards the device was fully functional again. Despite the existing damage, the blade could be locked and unlocked as required with an impactor 356. 823 (sample). The review of the device history record revealed that this implant was manufactured in september 2017. The parts conformed to dimensional specifications at the time of manufacturing and passed inspection requirements with no non-conformities noted; visual and functional checked were performed per 100% after the assembly of the component parts. No manufacturing related issues that would have contributed to this complaint were found; this complaint condition is most likely due to inadequate handling. Based on the investigation findings, it has been determined that no corrective and/or preventative action is proposed. Device was used for treatment, not diagnosis. If information is obtained that was not available for the initial medwatch, a follow-up medwatch will be filed as appropriate.
