Reason For Recall Terumo Cardiovascular Systems sent a Safety Advisory (AA-2010-007-C) on December 2, 2010 (Recall# Z-0882/0883-2011 RES 57416) regarding malfunctions of the Occluder and Air Bubble Detection (ABD) Modules to a confined number of Terumo Advanced Perfusion System 1 users. The investigation of the malfunction found a faulty component on the modules' application board caused the failures. Terumo CVS replaced all modules in the affected population. Terumo CVS has subsequently received two additional reports of similar malfunctions. The ensuing investigation concluded that, though highly unlikely, it is possible for the same component to fail in any module. Therefore, Terumo CVS is sending a Safety Advisory (with the same instruction as was provided in AA-2010-007-C) to all Terumo System 1 users and is updating the Operator's Manual with instructions on how to respond to a failure.
