|Approval Order Statement |
Approval for the sutureless connector (sc) catheter models 8709sc and 8731sc, and revision kit models 8578 and 8596sc to address the potential for side load leaks. The modification to your sutureless connector are as follows: 1) decreased the counter bore diameter from 0. 040" to 0. 035"; 2) decreased the depth of the counter bore from 0. 055" to 0. 050"; 3) increased the tolerance for the 0. 15" dimension of the tubing position from +-0. 01 to +-0. 02; and 4) added a requirement to the product specification for side load forces: connector must not occlude or leak when pressurized to 1. 0 +- 0. 1 psig air pressure and a force of 4. 8 +- 0. 1 lbf is distributed over the connector surface at an angle of 12 degrees +- 2 degrees.
