Reason/Issue Cables in the cable harness of the ceiling carriage may have received wear and tear or damage resulting in loss of system movement or loss of complete functionality. Siemens technical specialists have advised that this issue could result in a limited or total loss of functionality with regards to the system movement. The cable damage caused by this issue would only affect system movement, not the imaging. However, as this type of system may be used during procedures for the placement of catheters, pacemakers, transcatheter aortic valve implantations etc. The loss of system movement may limit the available imaging during this type of procedure.
