  • Causa
    The supplier angiodynamics has identified that the accu2i pmta applicator has the potential to not function as expected during use. the desired microwave energy will not be delivered due to coolant ingress in an electrical connection, this condition results in an error code “high reflective power” displayed on the microwave generator. please note that not all “high reflective power” error codes are a result of this failure mode, as this error code results from any instance where microwave energy is not efficiently transmitted to the tissue. although the specific failure mode of the applicator not delivering the desired microwave energy would not result in any direct harm to the patient; the inserted applicator will need to be removed and replaced in order to continue the procedure.
