1. Insufficient quantity or quality of bone
2. Blood supply limitations and previous infections, which may tend to retard healing.
3. Foreign-body sensitivity. Where material sensitivity is suspected, appropriate tests should be made and sensitivity ruled out prior to implantation.
4. Any active infection.
5. Conditions which tend to limit the patient's ability or willingness to restrict activities or follow directions during the healing period.
6. The use of this device may not be suitable for patients with insufficient or immature bone. The physician should carefully assess bone quality before performing orthopaedic surgery on patients who are skeletally immature.
