Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The opposite version serial numbers were assigned to 20mL and 40mL SynchroMed II Model 8637 pumps. This size-type indication is used by the programmer to identify the pump size and can cause a limitation in the useable fill volume on a 40 mL pump and could cause some confusion related to the size of a 20 mL pump which identifies itself as a 40 mL pump.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action The physicians have been notified via letter of the problem with the pump. Appointments will be made with the patients and a Medtronic representative to correct the implanted devices.
Quantity in Commerce 14
Distribution Within the United States and outside the United States.
