Warning: Should the blade bend and impinge upon the cup itself, excess torque could lever the cup out of the acetabulum along with attached bone. Blade Disposal After the cup has been explanted, it is recommended that the short and long Explant blades used in surgery be discarded. Wear and/or other damage...
