  • Causa
    The current packaging and ifu indicate a five-year shelf life. during long-term product testing, it was discovered that after a three-year term, there is a potential for the external packaging (sterile barrier) to become compromised. such compromised packaging results in the loss of the vacuum seal allowing for contamination of the inside peel pouch. a breach of the outer peel pouch has only been observed with packages at shelf life end and after excessive transportation testing.To date, medtronic have not received any complaints as a result of this issue.
