Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Old revisions and new revisions of the soft tissue sleeve and recon targeting arm are not interchangeable, as the new revision tissue sleeve will not fit into the old revision targeting arm. The old revision tissue sleeve has too much clearance with new revision targeting arm. Risks of encountering the affected product include: the correct instrument may not be readily available for the procedure causing the surgeon to complete the procedure by hand; or a delay in surgery greater than 30 minutes may occur while another Recon Targeting Arm or Recon Soft tissue Sleeve is located or while the surgeon completes the procedure by hand.
