Reason/Issue The affected lots of the Guide Sleeves (Part # 03.037.017) may have been manufactured with a slightly larger than specified outer diameter which could prevent the sleeve from going through the Trochanteric Fixation Nail Advanced (TFNA) aiming arm properly.

In the event that Guide Sleeve does not fit through the TFNA aiming arm properly, a surgical delay may occur.
