The FDA has issued a "class 2 recall" of Intuitive Surgical's (ISRG) da Vinci Surgical System after it emerged that 30 of the devices may not have been tested properly. The systems were re-checked and found to be ok, with no complaints received. A "class 2 recall" involves products that may cause temporary or reversible health problems, with the probability of serious issues being remote.

    The FDA continues to overreact. ISRG should concentrate on more progressive markets like India.

    Concerned that the continuing focus on health care costs and driving them down will squeeze ISRG unless the purchasers can show a significant ROI on the device.
