  • Cause
    It has been reported that the small electric drive (sed) may experience failure modes such as the device not functioning, the device operating solely in reverse mode, the device not operating in reverse when intended or an unintended start of the device. this may lead to surgical delays in the event the user requires a replacement power tool. an unintended start of the hand piece or wrong mode/direction could cause bone/soft tissue damage, peripheral nerve damage and /or vascular damage because the hand piece has the potential to progress further into the surgical site when the operator is not intending this motion. these injuries may need surgical or medical intervention.
