Graphic Cases for 6.5 mm and 7.3 mm Cannulated Screw Sets

Reason

DePuy Synthes is conducting a lot-specific recall of the graphic cases for 6.5mm and 7.3mm cannulated screw sets because they contain screw gauges that incorrectly measure screws 5.41mm shorter than the actual overall screw length. Thus, when using the measuring gauge, the surgeon would potentially be inserting a screw which is 5.41mm shorter than intended.
