Related Smith & Nephew PROMOS Shoulder System Recalls
This is not the first issue with a Smith & Nephew PROMOS shoulder product. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a Class II recall for the Smith & Nephew PROMOS Inclination Set in 2010. At the time, it was found that the company’s inclination set screws were fracturing causing serious injuries and major revision procedures. The series of inclinations sets were pulled from the market in the U.S., Asia, and Europe.
