Product Usage:
The Visualase Thermal Therapy System is indicated for use to necrotize or coagulate soft tissue through interstitial irradiation or thermal therapy under magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance in medicine and surgery in cardiovascular thoracic surgery (excluding the heart and the vessels in the pericardial sac), dermatology, ear-nose-throat surgery, gastroenterology, general surgery, gynecology, head and neck surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, orthopedics, pulmonology, radiology, and urology, for wavelengths 800 nm - 1060 nm. When therapy is performed under MRI guidance, and when data from compatible MRI sequences is available, the Visualase system can process images to determine relative changes in tissue temperature during therapy. The image data may be manipulated and viewed in a number of different ways, and the values of data at certain selected points may be monitored and/or displayed over time.

Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Medtronic has become aware that certain lots of the VCLAS 3MM, 10MM, and 15MM laser diffusing fibers were not tested at intended laser power levels, due to an issue related to calibration of the test equipment, which can lead to the potential for low laser energy output from fiber or fiber burnout at lower wattage.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Equipment maintenance
