Medical scopes linked to serious superbugs

The makers of medical scopes that are used to evaluate and to treat problems in the bile and pancreatic ducts turned down invitations to speak at a medical device safety panel discussion that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration held May 14. Meanwhile, the FDA continues to investigate the link between the use of these reprocessed devices, known as duodenoscopes, and the emergence of potentially fatal superbugs.

Medical scopes linked to serious superbugs

The makers of medical scopes that are used to evaluate and to treat problems in the bile and pancreatic ducts turned down invitations to speak at a medical device safety panel discussion that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration held May 14. Meanwhile, the FDA continues to investigate the link between the use of these reprocessed devices, known as duodenoscopes, and the emergence of potentially fatal superbugs.

Reacting to the association between the use of duodenoscopes and some patients' development of drug-resistant infections, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued new industry recommendations March 12 aimed at helping manufacturers to develop safer reusable medical devices.

Duodenoscopes under FDA scrutiny

It is possible that the "complex design" of duodenoscopes may make them hard to clean, to disinfect, and to sterilize, thus infection-prone. That assessment is from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, not from any law firm, which issued a safety communication Feb. 19 in regard to the medical devices. These devices are described technically as Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP, endoscopes.
