Action Olympus issued Urgent Medical Device Corrective Action on 11/02/21. Letter states reason for correction, health risk and action to take: 1. Consider transitioning from TJF-Q180V to a next generation duodenoscope through the Olympus incentive program. 2. Increase preventative maintenance frequency from annual to 6 months. 3. Evaluate existing duodenoscopes: https://medical.olympusamerica.com/TJFQ180VChecklist 4. The Technical Assistance Center (TAC) can assist you in answering questions on the TJF-Q180V inspection steps. 1-800-848-9024, option 1. 5. Use in-service training, the Olympus Video Guide, e-learning and on demand library to support staff training. ***UPDATE: Olympus issued an Urgent Medical Device Corrective Action UPDATED INFORMATION on 1/17/22. This is an update to the 11/2/21 previously provided supplemental material for inspection. In alignment with FDA Safety Communication dated August 29, 2019, and to further expedite transition to newer-generation duodenoscopes, Olympus America will soon begin offering customers with the older generation TJF-Q180V2 scopes a direct, no-cost 1 for 1 replacement with the state-of-the-art TJF-Q190V. Your Olympus sales representative will contact you regarding this program in the near future. In the interim, please continue to utilize the TJF-Q180V Inspection Checklist that Olympus recently sent. Olympus America will also be increasing the frequency of proactive inspection from once every twelve (12) months to once every six (6) months. To help minimize any potential patient impact regarding access to critical, life-saving ERCP procedures, loaners are available to mitigate disruption to healthcare facilities who need to return their duodenoscope(s) to Olympus for repair.
