RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Medtronic Neuromodulation, Minneapolis, MN, by letter beginning August 25, 2008. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Medtronic issued a letter to healthcare professionals providing important safety information regarding MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) effects on SynchroMed EL and SynchroMed II implantable infusion pumps. As stated in product labeling, the magnetic field of an MRI will temporarily stop the rotor of the pump motor and suspend drug infusion for the duration of MRI exposure for all SynchroMed pumps. The pump should resume normal operation when removed from the MRI magnetic field, however new information has been identified related to the following MRI effects: 1) There is the potential for a delay in the return of proper drug infusion after an MRI (this affects all SynchroMed pumps) and 2) There is the potential for a delay in the logging of motor stall events after an MRI (this only affects SynchroMed II pumps).

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Recalling Firm: Ethicon Endo-Surgery Inc., Cincinnati, OH, by letters on December 9, 2008.  
Manufacturer:  Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. S.A. de C.V. Planta II, Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Nickel exposure: The stainless steel tips on the affected product were degrading, causing a small amount of nickel to be released, which may lead to health risks in some patients, particularly those with a known or suspected nickel allergy or sensitivity. Ethicon Endo-Surgery determined the presence of free nickel in the affected product could elicit a reaction in those patients with nickel sensitivity or could sensitize certain patients to nickel exposure in the future.
