  • Causa
    The manufacturer biosense webster has recently received an increased number of complaints related to the display of alert 402 on the carto 3 system for two specific lots of thermocool brand catheters. alert 402 implies a ‘map: magnetic distortion’ when connected to carto 3 system. magnetic distortion may result in inaccurate catheter tip location information on the carto 3 system. this issue may subsequently lead the physician to ablate in an unintended area when delivering rf energy. severe complications (e.G. av block, vascular injury, cardiac perforation) are highly unlikely but may occur due to the physician selecting higher than required power settings for a given anatomical area.Whilst there have been no reports of adverse events in australia, one adverse event of pericardial effusion requiring pericardiocentesis with no further patient consequences was reported internationally, and was deemed to be potentially associated with this issue.
