  • Causa
    Medtronic identified that certain minimed sure-t infusion sets had a slight increase of reported cases where the steel needle broke during use. in a small number of these reported cases, the needle break led to hospitalisation for the management of glucose levels and/or treatment for removal of the needle. since then, an improvement in the needle manufacturing was implemented, which has reduced the number of reported cases of needle breaks.
  • Acción
    In the event consumers wish to carry on with using the old needle they are reminded to follow the current IFU along with specific additional instructions in the customer letter; OR if they prefer users (including members of the public) can phone Medtronic for replacement with unaffected stock.
