Excess Material Could Lead to a Possible Risk of Embolism
In September 2016, Vascular Solutions, Inc., a medical device company that focuses on products used in vascular procedures, issued an announcement recalling Twin-Pass Dual Access catheters because there is a potential for excess manufacturing material to remain at the tip of the catheter or within the distal portion of the rapid exchange lumen. According to a recall notice issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is possible that the excess material could potentially separate from the catheter during use and lead to a possible risk of embolism, which could result in serious injury or death.
Vascular Solutions voluntarily initiated the recall on September 16, 2016 through an Urgent Medical Device recall notification sent to purchasers of the affected catheters. The recalled products were manufactured from October 2014 to August 2016 and distributed from October 2014 to September 2016.
The recalled products are all unexpired lots of the following model numbers:
The FDA classified the recall as a Class I recall, a situation in which the product could potentially cause serious adverse consequences or death. Health care facilities that have the affected catheters are advised to remove the devices from their inventory and return them to the manufacturer.
How a Twin-Pass Dual Access Catheter Recall Lawyer Can Help
Medical device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their devices, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by a defective catheter may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
