The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a Class I Recall of all Brainlab Cranial Image-Guided Surgery Systems before version 3.0. This comes after findings exposed errors in the navigation system that can lead to serious injury and/or death.
The potential for errors in navigation system display in comparison to a patient’s anatomy can lead to life-threatening injuries, including death. Initial inaccuracy reports were supplied to Brainlab in April 2013. Updated information was forwarded to the company in May 2015.
Updates to 1,021 systems are being completed in the following states:
- North Carolina
The systems in question were sold to medical facilities in the states listed above. If systems older than 3.0 are still in use, it is suggested that the equipment cease from use until notification that system software updates have been completed for your specific device/s.
