The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that the NeuroBlate system caused significant injuries to patients. Monteris Medical, Inc. manufactured the defective product and had taken corrective measures to prevent the problems from reoccurring. Meanwhile, patients who are suffering from serious health problems like brain cancer are saddled with unintended setbacks due to manufacturing defects.
Monteris Medical’s NeuroBlate system helps physicians remove tumors and other tissue in places that are difficult to access. Doctors use the NeuroBlate to deliver laser energy along with magnetic resonance imaging to the tissue doctors want to destroy, or ablate, and possibly remove tumors. The NeuroBlate raises the temperature of the tissue intended to be killed and remove it while watching the procedure through a thermal imaging process.
The FDA has not released much information about the injuries patients suffered from the defective device. The FDA did indicate that the thermal imaging device was slow recording the temperature of the healthy tissue, thereby overheating the wrong areas, leading to severe health complications and side effects. There could also be a fault tip of the probe which might break and release the deadly gas carbon monoxide into the brain. The device utilizes carbon monoxide as a substance designed to cool the tissue.
The FDA has approved Monteris Medical, Inc’s proposed redesign of the device. The probe now contains fiber optic material which is better equipped to record the temperatures more accurately.
