suture scadute

Ho lavorato in Africa con materiale sterile scaduto.
A proposito dell'importanza della data di scadenza:
"This is a follow-up to our discussion about expiration dates of sutures.  I made an inquiry to Ethicon and got a reply stating that there was a standard expiration date of 5 years for surgical products, based on assurance of sterility.  The expiration date has nothing to do with testing of degradation of the instruments.  They just don't want to be responsible for anything they haven't tested.  Since they don't test past 5 years, they set that as the expiration date.Mark"
No comment.
