Supplies of shunts needed for medical operations are ongoing and are in sufficient supply. Neither domestic nor foreign manufacturers of these medical devices announced their withdrawal from the Russian market.
This was reported in Roszdravnadzor on Friday, June 24. As indicated in the press service of the department, manufacturers “continue to produce and supply medical devices in sufficient volume,” reports RIA Novosti.
The fact that there is no shortage of shunts was also reported at the Vishnevsky National Medical Center. They noted that the necessary medical products and consumables are available in sufficient quantities. “The information that appeared in a number of media and telegram channels is fake,” the center said, commenting on recent reports that Russian hospitals are allegedly running out of shunts for medical operations.
One of the Telegram channels allegedly had problems with shunts that Russian doctors had. Its journalists claimed that the stocks of these medical products for Russian hospitals had come to an end.
In the spring, Roszdravnadzor held an online meeting with foreign manufacturers of medical devices. As reported in the federal service following its results, manufacturers of medical devices confirmed their willingness to continue to work on the Russian market.
