Responsible Entity Stryker Australia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue The System 6 Aseptic Battery Kit provides a sterile enclosure for the Styker non-sterile battery. The manufacturer has identified the affected lot to have insufficient bond strength at a weld joint associated with the Aseptic Housing, due to an issue during manufacture. Therefore, the quality of the weld may not be as effective as intended. This could lead to the separation of the top section of the housing from the bottom section. This may lead to sterility breaches, loss of surgical control, intra-operative complications and potential delays in surgery.
