Medical device company Intuitive Surgical is shipping a new version of its surgical scissors after warning that an earlier model may develop "micro-cracks" that could cause internal burns. Intuitive Surgical (NSDQ:ISRG) is shipping a new version of its EndoWrist surgical scissors after last month issuing a warning that an earlier model may develop "micro-cracks" that could result in patient harm. Analysts at SunTrust noted the new shipments as a win for Intuitive Surgical, which is in the midst of some high-profile lawsuits over its da Vinci technology. In May Intuitive Surgical warned hospitals that the 8mm EndoWrist monopolar curved scissors, sold as an accessory to its da Vinci robot-assisted surgical system, may develop tiny cracks that aren't visible to the naked eye. The cracks "may create a pathway for electrosurgical energy to leak to tissue during use and potentially cause thermal injury," the company said.
