  • Causa
    During a retrospective review of sterilisation records, trimed has determined that evidence of quarterly dose audits/verification required to comply with the relevant regulations could not be found. sterilization records indicate that all lots of staples were irradiated to at least the defined dose and although trimed has not received any reports of adverse events or injuries, there is a risk that this issue could result in patient infection if not properly sterilised.
  • Acción
    As a permanent corrective action, TriMed will recall all of the Nitinol Staples that were manufactured between March 12, 2015 to the present date.
