Medtronic Visualase Laser Recalled Over Risk of Tissue Damage
In September 2018, Medtronic issued a Class II recall for the Visualase Thermal Therapy System over a potential defect in the MRI-guided laser ablation procedures which could cause accidental spread of thermal energy to the surrounding tissue. If the problem occurs during brain surgery, it could result in permanent brain damage or other life-threatening complications.
