  • Causa
    Baxter healthcare is issuing a recall of actifuse abx and actifuse mis system products with expiry before 29 july 2017 due to the possibility that the products may have endotoxin levels above specification criteria. in surgical procedures where there is device contact with the cerebrospinal fluid through a dural opening (iatrogenic injury), the use of a medical device with increased endotoxin levels may augment the typical inflammatory reaction to surgery and contribute to adverse health consequences. baxter has not received product-related adverse event reports that can be linked to cerebrospinal fluid exposure to increased levels of endotoxins.
