Biomet Hybrid Glenoid Boss Cutter; item 406150. - Surgical instrument used to prepare the natural shoulder glenoid surface for implanting a Hybrid Glenoid component. This instrument is intended to function by drilling a hole into the natural glenoid surface allowing the center boss of glenoid implant to sit within the hole, and the non-articulating surface of the glenoid implant to rest flush onto the natural glenoid surface, Recall # Z-1658-2008

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Biomet, Inc., Warsaw, IN, by letters dated March 13, 2008. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
The glenoid implant may not seat fully on the face of the natural glenoid due to inadequate measurement tolerances (tolerance stack-up) in the design of the cutter. Use of the instrument may lead to incomplete seating of the glenoid implant, elevating the theoretical risk of glenoid loosening, which may lead to early revision surgery. The problem may contribute to early device failure and patient injury because the stack-up tolerances could result in inadequate removal of bone from the natural glenoid surface. Long range health consequences may include: premature breakdown of cement mantle, excessive fatigue loading, the potential for early device failure and patient injury.

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Cooper Surgical, Inc., Trumbull, CT, by letter on January 16, 2008. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Vacuum Assisted Delivery System may have a loss of vacuum, or the cup will not release from the baby's head. A loss of vacuum may delay delivery and require the use of forceps and/or c-section for delivery. An inability to remove the cup from the head may delay delivery and/or prevent the user from applying forceps if necessary. This may result in serious injury or death to the baby.

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Philips Medical Systems, Andover, MA, by the Field Safety Notice. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Some users of SureSigns VS3 Signs Monitor may have assumed that the SpO2 Non-Pulsatile and SpO2 No Sensor technical alarms were enabled when the SureSigns VS3 Vital Signs Monitor was not in Interval non-invasive blood pressure (NBP) mode. These alarms are only enabled when interval NBP mode is selected. If when monitoring SpO2, the clinician does not notice when the sensor is no longer attached, the patient is not being monitored through Spo2.This could result in delay or lack of needed therapy. The labeling provided with the monitor did not fully describe this feature.

EasyVision RAD - Radiological Image Processor, software versions: SW R4 2V2L2, SW R4 2V2L3, SW R4 2V2L4, SW R4 2V2L5, SW R4 2V2L6, and SW R4 2V2L7. The EasyVision RAD consists of a computer with digital interfaces, one or two (optional) monitors with keyboard and mouse, and software. The viewing, analysis, processing and printing functions are sent to the EasyVision by means of PMSNet (Philips Medical Systems communication protocol). The main image source for the PCR (Philips Computed Radiography) system is the CR-Reader. Remote database access and image transfer functions are implemented using the DICOM Query/Retrieve and Storage services. The EasyVision RAD provides the following features: receives images sent to it by remote applications (e.g. workstations or imaging modalities) and stores them in a local database; allows the operator to copy images from the local database to remote databases and vice versa; allows a remote system to query the EasyVision local database and to retrieve images from it; allows the operator to view, analyze, process and print the images stored in the local database. Operator may print images stored in the database on a DICOM printer, and is able to read and write DICOM CD-R disks. The device allows processing of and access to the stored raw data so that an image can be post-processed using different image processing algorithms.
