  • Causa
    Intuitive surgical has become aware that circuit boards in specific da vinci x surgical system arms are susceptible to early failures that may result in system faults. the affected arms include arm controller joint circuit boards manufactured with components from a specific manufacturing lot that, due to manufacturing variations, may fail prematurely.As indicated in the user manual, if an arm-specific fault occurs on a system during a procedure and the fault cannot be recovered, the affected arm can be disabled and the procedure may be continued with three arms.If a fault that is not arm-specific occurs, restarting the system may clear the fault. however, the fault may recur. the user may then decide to abort the da vinci procedure or convert to an alternate surgical method.There have been no patient injuries as a result of this issue.
