  • Causa
    Bausch + lomb, inc. recently identified that some disposable canisters (with a 4-digit batch number) supplied with the dvo amvisc plus are not fitting properly to the luer-lock in the sterile glass syringes of amvisc plus. disposable cannulae with 4-digit lot numbers may leak viscoelastic material or dislodge the syringe during injection. the immediate consequence of cannula detachment during intraocular use could involve damage to the intraocular tissue, which may or may not have far-reaching consequences, depending on the specific tissue involved and the nature of the injury.
  • Acción
    Discontinue use of the affected lots of Amvisc Plus DVO immediately.
