Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall was initiated after Advanced Orthopaedic Solutions (AOS) became aware of a manufacturing defect involving the short Trochanteric Nail, where one piece was found to be incorrectly bent. If this issue were to recur, surgery time could be extended, but only slightly as nail exchanges take place commonly in a surgery of this type.
FDA Determined
