Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Due to intermittent failures of the power supply in the ultrasound system which renders it inoperable.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Software change control
Action On 07/12/2021, the firm sent a "MEDICAL DEVICE SAFETY CORRECTION" Notification via email to customers informing them that there are intermittent failures of the power supply in the ultrasound system which may render the system inoperable. When an ultrasound system experiences this failure, cycling the power does not recover system functionality. Potential health risks include, lack of ultrasound guidance during interventional procedures (e.g., biopsy, guidance during surgery, patient under sedation) that rely on real-time ultrasound imaging to guide or complete the procedure. Customer will be contacted by a Customer Service Engineer to schedule a visit to their facility to update the system. Customers are asked to ensure that all users are aware of this issue and correction within their organization and others who may need to be inform of this situation.
