  • Causa
    Additional information is being added to the instructions for use (ifu) for sonopet® ultrasonic products. ultrasonic surgical aspirator devices use an oscillating tip to cause tissue fragmentation through the delivery of ultrasound energy to target tissue. the potential for tissue dissemination is mitigated, but not completely eliminated, by the use of suction/aspiration. although fda is not aware of reports of dissemination or upstaging of occult uterine malignancies related to ultrasonic surgical aspirators at this time, the agency is recommending that all device manufacturers add a contraindication against use for the removal of uterine fibroids.
