  • Causa
    The manufacturer, brainlab ag has determined that pins of the instrument star unit ml (calibration with icm4) with specific serial numbers might have been made using an incorrect material that is not suitable for necessary disinfection and sterilisation of the product. consequently, the biocompatibility of these specific products cannot be ensured. pins made of this incorrect material will not withstand the necessary reprocessing procedures described in the brainlab cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation guide. the prescribed reprocessing procedures will cause visible corrosion of pins made of this incorrect material. one or multiple pins of each product might be affected. if this corrosion occurs and is not detected by the user, and the device is used during surgery, corroded particles of the pin could, directly or indirectly, enter the patient’s body, potentially leading to infection and serious injury of the patient.
