    Research led by Trinity College in Ireland has found that a regulation which came into effect in May 2021 with the aim of improving the oversight of medical devices in Ireland is leading to unintended consequences which may put some surgeries for children, and the treatment of rare diseases, at risk. The study has been published in the journal Pediatric Cardiology. Medical devices include a great diversity of technologies, which are evaluated and approved in the European Union (EU) according to a revised law that came into effect on 26 May 2021, known as the Medical Device Regulation or MDR (EU 745/2017). It has a transition period that allows products that were approved under the previous rules (the EU Medical Device Directives) to continue to be marketed until 26 May 2024 at the latest. As a result of a series of unforeseen factors, there is a possibility that the MDR may result in products becoming unavailable, with the consequent risk of a loss of some interventions that are reliant upon those devices. Devices that are used for orphan or paediatric indications are particularly vulnerable to this. The paper provides an example of one device, the Rashkind balloon catheter, first developed by Dr William Rashkind in 1966 to open the upper chambers in the heart in neonates with congenital heart disease. A number of these balloons were once available in Europe and now there is only one. This device may become unavailable next year. If this happens, it will not be possible to continue this procedure, and alternative surgeries or treatments are far less optimal. The paper also describes the timeline and cost of bringing the device to market in the EU, the US and Canada, and the cost and time needed to access the EU market has become much greater. Researchers believe there is now an urgent need for policy to be developed to protect essential medical devices for orphan indications and for use in children, to ensure that necessary interventions can continue, and to ensure a more sustainable system in Europe over the longer term.

    In England, there are around 200 specialist paediatric surgeons working across 22 specialist trusts. This report presents recommendations to improve surgery for children based on visits to these specialist centres and 67 high-volume, non-specialist trusts. Key recommendations include: delivering surgery for the most complex conditions in fewer centres of expertise. reducing the number of unnecessary operations. increasing the scope of day surgery. You will need a FutureNHS account to view this report, or you can view a short video summary which includes key recommendations.

    The focus of CORESS is on detecting and learning from no-harm, near-miss and low harm events encountered during routine surgical practice. The programme collects reports of such events, analyses them and disseminates the learning contained within them to a wide surgical audience and other agencies involved in Patient Safety matters. These events are known collectively as ‘Accident Precursor Events’ or simply ‘Precursors’. See previous reports below. Summer 2021 - Unrecognised limb ischemia following trauma, differences of opinion in management for tongue laceration, lack of communication in patient discharge, consequences of service disruption during the COVID-19 Pandemic, systems and communications errors leading to orthopaedic Never Event, too slick by half. Winter 2020 - Missed pulmonary embolism, gastrectomy kit miscommunication, leaking gastrostomy, fatal pulmonary embolus after renal cancer surgery, ureteric injury, PICC line misplacement, CVP line causing haemothorax. Summer 2020 - Thoracic outlet surgery complications, missed breast tumour in pooled case, abscess confusion, injection error, fall from grace, atypical thromboses.
