An Australian newspaper known as The Newcastle Herald reported that the TFS device had been deregistered in Australia, and that certain advertisements from TFS Manufacturing were deemed misleading and exaggerative.
Moreover, the U.S. FDA recently banned TFS Surgical from importing the device into the United States for failing to meet quality system requirements according to the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society.
