Thank you for doing all this wonderful detective research for me! I will certainly check it out.
ps. Have you come across anyone who had to find out the manufacturer and type of clips used in their craniotomy?
I have to have an MRI of my cervical spine and thought that I should mention my clipping.
Before the MRI appointment was made.
I am in contact with my surgeons to get the procedure nod on the clips.
Evidently, there are some clips and MRI devices that do not work well together. Like all of them?!
Seems this has been an issue since at least 2013, some get a card and others do not. I just looked using the magnifying glass with the words clipping and card. For my Neuroform Atlas stent, Dr. Quintero-Wolfe personally handed me mine with directions to keep it on me at all times. I would think your surgeon should have filled out a card and given it to you. My card has the date of install, manufacturer and device name and code and the MRI strength that can be used. I remember laughing about it and telling her I now have a VIN number just in case of recalls😂
Good morning! Thank you for sharing this very important information. I am not sure why I didn’t receive a card with all of the important information on it post surgery. Maybe they did give one to me and I just don’t remember.
I like your sense of humor about having a Vin number!
I have sent several responses that keep coming back as “undeliverable”.
Thanks to your heads up on the clip card, I have one coming via mail from my surgeons.
How extremely important to have such a life saving document on you when you leave the hospital!
There’s a Medical alert bracket that looks like a Fitbit that I am going to order to have my clip info on. I wrong always have my wallet on me.
So grateful for this blessed place to share such important information and support each other!

Good morning! I discovered what the problem was with my responses being returned. Somehow😏I wrote my response on my email instead here.
