The FDA has recently issued a class 1 recall of Stryker’s OASYS Midline Occiput Plate due to reports of fracture of the pin that connects the implant’s tulip head to the plate body. The OASYS Midline Occiput Plate is used to stabilize the junction between the occipital bone and the vertebrae in the cervical spine.
The fracture of the pin may cause serious health issues including blood loss, nerve damage, and the need for revision surgery to replace the fractured spinal implant. If an implant recipient begins experiencing symptoms including pain, weakness, or numbness, urgent medical evaluation is needed.
Class I recalls are the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
If you or anyone you know have received this device implant and need revision surgery due to pain and suffering from the product defect, please contact Richard Taylor or Steve Martino at (251) 433-3131 to learn about your or their rights.
