Dilatation Catheter Recalled

A Class-I recall was recently announced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration pertaining to the ev3 NanoCross .014" PTA Dilation Catheter, which has been reported to have the potential to crack or break.

The Class I recall, which is the most serious type of recall of products believed to pose a serious health consequence, was issued for the catheter because it has shown a potential for cracking or breaking. Should that happen, it could cause potential embolization of catheter fragments, leading to surgery, injury, bleeding, and possible death.

Reports say the Catheter is intended to allow infirm patients to continue basic bodily functions while hospitalized or otherwise incapacitated. Once the patient is well enough to stand and move to the bathroom, it is removed and discarded. But mid-November the NanoCross .014" OTW PTA Dilatation Catheters were voluntary recalled, and a request was issued that all affected products be located and removed from use.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
