Urgent Medical Device Recall – Stryker Spinal Implants
The FDA and Stryker corporation have issued a class one recall of Stryker spinal implants. A defect in the product could cause the device to fracture and cause blood loss, nerve injury, and the need for revision surgery to replace the fractured implant. Along with the recall, orthopedic surgeons are being advised to routinely evaluate patients that have an implanted OASYS Midline plate.
