France Suspends Sale of MicroVal Devices for Lack of CE Mark
France's National Medicines Safety Agency has suspended the marketing of several MicroVal devices for lack of a CE mark.
The implants are used to treat female urinary incontinence and hernia of the pelvic organs in women. The affected products are branded as Safire, Swift-Sling, Smile, Prolafix, Procur, S-Swift and Gyne-Pro.
The agency said the suspension will remain in effect until the manufacturer brings the devices back into compliance.
