FDA Updates 2019 Medtronic Recall of StealthStation

Date Initiated by Firm: August 9, 2019

Medtronic recalled the auto-registration feature of its StealthStation DBS Software in August, 2019, due to inaccuracies caused by patient movement during the auto-registration process when used with NexFrame during a DBS procedure, which may not be detected by the surgeon or the device system.

This may provide inaccurate registration data which could lead surgeons to inaccurately navigate lead placement during image guided DBS procedures. This could result in serious or life-threatening patient harm.

As of June 2020, a total of 33 medical device reports were identified: 22 related to device malfunction and 11 related to injuries.
