  • Causa
    Olympus received 7 customer complaints about urf-v2 / v2r endoscopes associated with tissue trauma (3 cases), ureter perforation (1 case), and insertion tubes that were stuck inside the patient and had to be surgically removed ( 3 cases). research has shown that breaking within the underlying metal bending tube of the endoscope contributes to adverse events. olympus has modified the curvature mechanism. in an effort to mitigate the occurrence of adverse events, olympus initiated this action by fsca to replace existing products with those with the new curvature mechanism. in addition, for urf-p6 / p6r endoscopes, there were no adverse events associated with curvature section breaking. however, urf-p6 / p6r has a similar but not identical design to urf-v2 / v2r. therefore, in an effort to mitigate the occurrence of adverse events, omsc decided to undertake the same action for urf-p6 / p6r as urf-v2 / v2r.
