Here are three instances of spine technology recalls this year so far.

Alpha Omega Engineering's Neuro Omega system, used to assist neurosurgeons in identifying brain structures during neurosurgery, was recalled due to a design flaw that may connect two separate electrode stimulation channels into one, causing unplanned electrical stimulation.

Brainlab recalled the Spine & Trauma 3D Navigation Software due to the potential for incorrect information to display during surgery that may prevent the surgeon from accurately navigating surgical tools inside the patient.

Medtronic recalled the Synergy Cranial Software and StealthStation S7 Cranial Software used with the StealthStation Surgical Navigation System due to reports of incorrect information displaying during biopsy procedures that could result in serious or life-threatening patient harm.
