  • Causa
    - during a surgical procedure, if the blade does not return to its original position within a specified timeframe, the system determines the instrument has an “exposed blade”. the da vinci si system is designed to display a recoverable fault when an “exposed blade” error occurs. a recoverable fault means that you may continue using the system after addressing the error. activating and firing the knife blade while the jaws are more than 4 mm open increases the likelihood of an exposed blade error. currently, the vessel sealer applies bipolar energy between the electrode surfaces on the interior surface of the instrument jaws in order to coagulate vessels up to 7 mm in size. users are then instructed to keep the master grips fully closed during the sealing cycle. opening the grip on the masters reduces the pressure applied to the vessel during sealing, which may result in insufficient sealing performance.
  • Acción
    Device Technologies Australia is informing their customers of the changes to the user manual to reduce the potential for exposed blade errors and providing a software upgrade to reduce the potential for insufficient sealing. Device Technologies Australia is informing the customers to continue using the Endo Wrist One Vessel Sealer. A Device Technologies Australia product specialist / technician will contact the customer and provide the updated User Manual and schedule the software upgrade which will be available in December 2014. This action has been closed-out on 18/07/2016.
