  1. BRAHMS copeptin assay to rule out myocardial infarction in patients with acute chest pain (MTG4)

    In November 2016, NICE reviewed this guidance and recommended that it should be withdrawn. The guidance was published in June 2011 and recommended that further research was carried out on the technology. There was insufficient evidence on its use in clinical practice to recommend adoption. On reviewing the guidance in 2016, NICE determined that: The comparator in the original guidance, standard serial troponin testing, was changed in 2014 to high sensitivity troponin testing which expert advice indicated is now widespread in the NHS The clinical pathway in the original evaluation has significantly changed and the original scope is no longer valid. These changes mean that the current guidance is no longer valid and NICE would not be able to update it. The guidance has therefore been withdrawn. For a copy of the review decision please contact nice@nice.org.uk.

  2. The MAGEC system for spinal lengthening in children with scoliosis (MTG18)

     April 2020: This guidance has been withdrawn while the MHRA conducts an investigation into the MAGEC system. The MHRA issued a Medical Device Alert MDA/2020/011 for all MAGEC systems. This is in response to the manufacturer’s latest Field Safety Notice and previous field safety notices for problems that may require early removal of devices and lead to inadequate treatment. The MHRA is not recommending prophylactic removal of devices but the supply of all MAGEC systems is suspended in the UK while the MHRA investigation is ongoing. The MHRA has set out the following actions: Do not implant MAGEC rods in the UK until further notice. Identify all patients implanted with a MAGEC System and ensure systems are in place to follow up these patients.
