Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Certain VOLISTA StandOP Surgical Lights have been identified as having a potential light head detachment issue. Improper assembly of the bracket that connects the light head to the axle fork could result in the light head bracket breaking, causing the light head to detach from the arm and become suspended only from the cabling inside the arm. Use of an affected device may result in serious injury to patient and/or medical staff if the light head detaches and drops, impacting patient and/or medical staff during demonstration, service, or use.

Process control
Action On June 14, 2018, the firm issued an Urgent Medical Device Field Correction letter via FedEx to affected customers. Customers were advised of the potential light head detachment on VOLISTA StandOP Surgical Lights. Customers were instructed to do the following: 1. Ensure that all users were made aware of the recall; distributors were asked to forward the recall letter to their customers' attention for appropriate action. 2. Check your VOLISTA StandOP serial number versus the list of affected devices on page 5 and ensure it is available for a Getinge Service technician visit. 3. Per the VOLISTA Instructions for Use*, Section 11.2 (General Maintenance) - Daily Checks (performed by the user), examine your affected VOLISTA StandOP surgical light immediately. If the bracket in the device is improperly assembled, mechanical play will be observed when the light head is manipulated in a way that is not expected to be encountered in clinical use. Further instructions for testing the device are included in the letter. 4. Complete and sign the enclosed Customer Response Form (Page 5) and return to Getinge using the fax number or email address provided on the form. A Getinge Service person will contact the person you listed on the Customer Response Form to schedule service for an update of your device, free of charge.
