After receiving AMDR’s rebuttal to SGNA’s 6/7/13 position statement on reprocessing, Becker’s ASC Review has revised the original article with the SGNA statement with AMDR’s position below, and published a brief statement on behalf of AMDR:

The Association of Medical Device Reprocessors has released a response to the recent “Reuse of Single-Use Critical Medical Devices” statement by the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates.  The SGNA stance calls for further research on the risk and potential benefits of reprocessing single-use medical devices.  The AMDR responses states that all devices cleared by the FDA for reuse are supported by ample evidence for reprocessing and reuse.
