FDA Issues Recalls to Intuitive Surgical Inc., da Vinci Surgical System
In December 2013, The U.S. Food & Drug Administration issued a Class II recall to Intuitive Surgical Inc., the parent of the da Vinci surgical system. The recall of 1386 devices involves friction with the instrument arms that can cause them to stall; thus causing malfunction in the product and potential harm to the patient.
July 2013, prior to the December Recall, FDA Recalls approximately 30 machine instruments that it said had not been properly tested at the factory.
Typically an FDA Class II recall indicates that a device may cause “temporary or medically reversible” health problems, as well as a remote possibility of serious health problems.
November 2013, the company issues two (2) voluntary Recalls of other miscellaneous parts of the da Vinci surgical system.
