Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
A cable inside the C-arm systems may have been routed in an inappropriate manner. Improper routing of the cable may result in increased wear over time. Without additional measures, the potential exists for a cable inside the C-arm to break which could result in restricted functionality or system failure and an ongoing procedure could be terminated. Additionally, a subgroup of affected C-arm systems will receive a replacement of the cable harness.
