Overview

The Small Battery Drive (SBD) and Small Battery Drive II (SBD II) are hand-held, battery-driven power tools that drill and cut bones and hard tissues. They are used in traumatology and hand and foot surgery.

SBD Adaptors Recalled for Explosion Risk

In January 2016, DePuy Synthes sent its customers an “Urgent Recall” notice warning about the risk of explosions from Adaptors and Light Adaptors, which are power sources for the SBD and SBD II.

What is the problem?

In September 2016, the FDA announced a Class I recall for 451 battery adaptors because they can produce “extreme internal pressure, which may cause the device to explode.”

What is the risk?

An explosion in the operating room could cause serious injury or death to the surgeon, the patient, and anyone else in the operating room. The adaptors are only used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

What Adaptors Were Recalled?

The recalled adaptors have serial numbers 05.001.024 and 05.001.108. They were manufactured until April 5, 2016 and distributed to customers between January 2006 and June 2016.
