Da Vinci Scissors' micro-cracks
Last month (as we also reported), there was a big turmoil around the alleged safety issue with the 2009-2012 models of electric tools (the Monopolar Curved Scissors) of the da Vinci. After a swarm of legal suits, Intuitive also made an urgent announcement, acknowledging the possible issue.
Now, Intuitive has begun shipping replacement parts for the affected ones. Intuitive carefully avoided to call it a product recall.
If you have an insight story on the faulty tools, let us know!
