These conditions increase the risk of undesirable outcomes: o Infection o Inadequate blood supply to the operative site due to compromised vascularity. o Inadquate tissue coverage over the operative site o Bone quality compromised by disease, infection or prior surgical procedures (implanation) that cannot provide adequate support or fixation of the devices. o Foreign body (material) sensitivity o Patients with mental or neurological conditions which increase the risk of complications in post-operative care
WARNINGS • • • • • • • • • •
Avalign recommends thorough manual and automated cleaning of medical devices prior to sterilization. Automated methods alone may not adequately clean devices. Devices should be reprocessed as soon as possible following use. Instruments must be cleaned separately from cases and trays. All cleaning agent solutions should be replaced frequently before becoming heavily soiled. Prior to cleaning, sterilization and use, remove all protective caps carefully. All instruments should be inspected to ensure proper function and condition. Do not use instruments if they do not perform satisfactorily. Lubrication of quick connect related mechanisms is required prior to use to prevent difficulty in actuation. The sterilization methods described have been validated with the devices in predetermined placement locations per the case and tray designs. Areas intended for specific devices shall contain only those devices. Risk of damage – The surgical instruments are precision devices. Careful handling is important for the accurate functioning of the devices. Improper external handling can cause the devices to malfunction. Use caution when handling sharp instruments to avoid injury. Wash the instrument case and trays with an aluminum safe, neutral pH detergent to avoid faded surface colors and deterioration of anodized surfaces. If a device is/was used in a patient with, or suspected of having Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), the device cannot be reused and must be destroyed due to the inability to reprocess or sterilize to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination.
CAUTION Federal U.S. Law restricts this device to sale, distribution, and use, by, or on order of a physician. LIMITATIONS ON REPROCESSING Repeated processing has minimal effect on these instruments. End of life is normally determined by wear and damage due to use. DISCLAIMER It is the responsibility of the reprocessor to ensure reprocessing is performed using equipment, materials and personnel in the reprocessing facility and achieves the desired result. This requires validation and routine monitoring of the process. Any deviation by the reprocessor from the instructions provided must be properly evaluated for effectiveness and potential adverse consequences.

The operating instructions and guidelines for maximum load configuration of the sterilizer manufacturer should be followed explicitly. The sterilizer must be properly installed, maintained, and calibrated. Time and temperature parameters required for sterilization vary according to type of sterilizer, cycle design, and packaging material. It is critical that process parameters be validated for each facility’s individual type of sterilization equipment and product load configuration. A facility may choose to use different steam sterilization cycles other than the cycle suggested if the facility has properly validated the cycle to ensure adequate steam penetration and contact with the devices for sterilization. Note: rigid sterilization containers cannot be used in gravity steam cycles. Water droplets and visible signs of moisture on sterile packaging/wrap or the tape used to secure it may compromise the sterility of the processed loads or be indicative of a sterilization process failure. Visually check outside wrap for dryness. If there are water droplets for visible moisture observed the pack or instrument tray is considered unacceptable. Repackage and re-sterilize the packages with visible signs of moisture.
STORAGE • •
After sterilization, instruments should remain in sterilization packaging and be stored in a clean, dry cabinet or storage case. Care should be taken when handling devices to avoid damaging the sterile barrier.
MAINTENANCE • •
Attention: Apply autoclavable lubricant only on the connecting elements (locking mechanism) and moving parts. Discard damaged, worn or non-functional devices.
