Manufacturer Narrative
Neither the device nor applicable imaging films were returned to the manufacturer for evaluation, therefore, the cause of the event cannot be determined.
 
Event Description
Allegedly, two 16mm locking screws were locked but other two 16mm locking screws would not lock onto the plate. The surgeon tried to insert a 18mm locking screw but it would not be locked. So the surgeon removed the locking screws and plate and used back up devices. Surgery time extended 40 minutes. No patient complications were reported.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
Visual examination of the part did not show any overall excessive gross deformation. However, there did appear to be some slight wear to the head threads and driving feature of the screw, most likely due to the attempted insertion.
