    The distal portion of the electrode insulation of a small number of units may have been damaged during manufacture. in the event that a unit with damaged insulation is used on a patient contrary to recommended instructions for use supplied with the product, thermal damage could occur to the patient’s peripheral tissue. such damage would be outside the surgeon’s primary field of view during a laparoscopic procedure and therefore not easily identified at the time of occurrence. .
