RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Visx, Inc., Santa Clara, CA, by letter on May 30, 2007. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Erroneous Treatment Calculations - Two software caused errors; in combination, in the WaveScan System Software, will result in an erroneous treatment calculation (overcorrection) in patients. (1) Installation of software for a certain brand of computer (Dedicated Computing LLC) can cause a software registry setting for an algorithm that identifies image reflection to be erroneously set in the "off" position upon installation on these specific computers, and (2) Software error in the WaveScan System application produces erroneous treatment calculations.

Manufacturer: P.G.P. s.a., Brussels, Belgium. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Sample/Patient Mis-identification: Two issues identified related to the ACCELERATOR Decision Manager (ADM), to include: 1) Sample Identification (SID) and/or Patient Identification (PID) numbers that contain more than 12 characters are truncated to the final 12 characters by the ADM; 2) for SIDs using alpha characters that are case sensitive, SIDs with lower case characters are transmitted by the ADM as upper case characters. Both issues have the potential for sample results to be associated with the incorrect patient.
