Synthes To Recall N-Hance Rods?
It was reported today that Kurt Birchler has asked the Syntes (love that lisp) Spine Salesforce to send in all of the N-Hance Rods from the field. This was probably a long time coming considering they were rumors on the Street that Synthes was experiencing technical difficulties with the rod. Voluntary or Not, The Arbeitsgemeinschaft Osteosynthesfragen spent $75 million on this acquisition. Would it be safe to assume that this was an investment that has gone belly up? Considering that David (I'm a rocket scientist) Nicholls and Hansjoerg Emch were fired last year for exhibiting incompetence, could Birchler and Michelle be that far behind? TSB wants to know what its readers think?
