2.7 mm Emergency Screw Precautions
- Confirm functionality of instruments and check for wear during reprocessing. Replace worn or damaged instruments prior to use.
- It is recommended to use the instruments identified for this screw.
- Handle devices with care and dispose worn bone cutting instruments in a sharps container.
- Always irrigate and apply suction for removal of debris potentially generated during implantation or removal.
2.7 mm Emergency Screw Warnings
- Screws can break during use (when subjected to excessive forces). While the surgeon must make the final decision on removal of the broken part based on associated risk in doing so, we recommend that whenever possible and practical for the individual patient, the broken part should be removed. Be aware that implants are not as strong as native bone. Implants subjected to substantial loads may fail.
- Instruments, screws and cut plates may have sharp edges or moving joints that may pinch or tear user’s glove or skin.
- Take care to remove all fragments that are not fixated during the surgery.
- While the surgeon must make the final decision on implant removal, we recommend that whenever possible and practical for the individual patient, fixation devices should be removed once their service as an aid to healing is accomplished. Implant removal should be followed by adequate post-operative management to avoid refracture.
