Product Name/Description Mako Internal cPCI Card Cage

Item Number: 201337

Lot Number: 05212015

ARTG Number: 223105
Recall Action Level Hospital
Recall Action Classification Class II
Recall Action Commencement Date 11/07/2017
Responsible Entity Stryker Australia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue Stryker has determined that during assembly of the cPCI Card Cage, a potential cross threading of the 3.3 VDC lug may exist. Visual inspection did not confirm the assembly error. This condition could result in an intermittent power connection in the cPCI Card Cage and abnormal system behaviour or a total loss of power.

Powering down of the system due to intermittent or total loss of power is estimated to have a probability of occurrence at 0.0022%. This would make the system temporarily unavailable. Potential harms resulting in this failure mode are extended surgical time of =15 minutes or extended surgical time of >30 minutes.
