  • Cause
    Baxter received complaints indicating that the iodine sponge of the minicap was fully separated from the cap, partially protruding from the cap, or missing.This may give rise to infusion of micro-organisms or by-products of microbes or other foreign materials into the peritoneal cavity, which may lead to bacterial or fungal peritonitis and/or infusion of inert foreign material into the peritoneal cavity which may lead to tissue injury or peritoneal membrane injury.These events are considered as catastrophic, however, the likelihood of this occuring has been calculated by the manufacturer as improbable (less than one in one million chance).
  • Action
    Users are advised to inspect the product to ensure there is no damage to the MiniCap and that the sponge is fully within the cap. Do not use the product if the sponge is protruding or missing from the cap, and obtain a new MiniCap.
