Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Encision is performing a field correction to their AEM Disposable Electrodes due to two consumer complaints reporting unanticipated alarms from the AEM monitor while using the device. This issue could result delays or complications during surgical procedures.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
DESIGN: Device Design
Action Encision sent an Urgent Medical Device Recall letter dated June 13, 2012, to all affected customers. The letter identified the product, the problem, and the action to be taken by the customer. Customers were instructed to lubricate the contact on the instrument cord with a conductive gel (to be supplied by Encision) prior to making the connection of the cord to the instrument. Instructions for applying the gel were attached. This corrective action was temporary; allowing customers to use their inventory of devices and for new product in the short term, until a design correction can resolve the problem. Customers would be contacted by their Encision Sales Representative to review this information for their specific situation and train their staff on its correction. For questions customers should call 303-339-6917 or Customer Service at 800-998-0986. For questions regarding this recall call 303-339-6917.
