  • Causa
    The manufacturer, getinge, has received complaints concerning unintentional drifting of the cupola during surgery due to prematurely worn out brake screws. the observed movement is a slow rotation of the cupola around the axis, potentially shifting the light patch away from the wound.Clinical evaluations concluded that there is a low risk of injury or other health consequences expected for the patient or the user. only one (i.E. the heavier) cupola of a configuration is concerned by the malfunction, and the second cupola provides sufficient illumination of the surgical area if the issue occurs during surgery.
