ConforMIS plunges on recall, guidance cut


ConforMIS (NSDQ:CFMS) shares plunged nearly 19% today after the Bedford, Mass.-based company recalled some 950 of its customized knee replacements and cut its outlook for the rest of the year.

The company received 3 complaints of moisture on the patient-specific instrumentation used with the implants, although all 3 procedures went off without a hitch, ConforMIS said. The recall affects its iUni, iDuo, iTotal CR and iTotal PS devices. Roughly 650 of the devices involved in the recall have already been implanted and the remaining 300 have shipped for scheduled procedures but not used, the company said.
