  • Acción
    Medtronic informed all Belgium implanting and managing physicians of the SynchroMed II infusion system. Each customer was mailed a Dear Healthcare Professional letter (Medtronic Urgent: Field Safety Notice) on 4/3/08 providing important safety information and patient management recommendations regarding the device incompatibility. The firm recommends that healthcare professionals do not use SC catheters if a connection with an implantable access port is required. Also, if a continuous infusion trial is required with use of an implantable access port, they should use a model 8711 intrathecal catheter. The firm states that for patients who are currently undergoing a continuous trial with an implantable port, replacing the catheter connector before connecting to the SynchroMedd II using the Medtronic model 8578 revision kit is recommended. Medtronic also recommends discussing the risks of connection failure with patients. Local field reps will personally follow-up with affected customers to confirm and document notification.
