  • Cause
    Greatbatch medical has identified an issue with the 00-7804-080-00 offset reamer handle, as field complaints were reported that the drive chain mechanism seizes during use. the function of the drive chain mechanism is to transmit rotational power from a mechanical drill to an acetabular reamer during a total hip arthroplasty. during seizing, the device is rendered non-functional in the operating room. the risks associated with this failure are: 1. the offset reamer handle seizes and the surgery must be completed with an alternate device, leading to a delay of 30 minutes or greater from the scheduled surgery time. 2. the offset reamer handle seizes and no replacement device is available in the hospital, leading to an interruption and rescheduling of surgery.
