Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The screw may fracture at the junction of the shaft and the head during implantation. The patient may retain a foreign body if the fractured screw cannot be removed. Soft tissue irritation will not occur as the retained portion of the screw is below the surface of the plate. A delay in surgery less than 30 minutes may occur.
