Boston Scientific Liberte¿¿ Monorail¿ and Over-the-Wire Coronary Stent Systems to be relabeled as VeriFLEX". || The Liberte¿¿ Coronary Stent System consists of a balloon expandable stainless steel stent, pre-mounted on either a Liberte¿ Monorail¿ (MR) or Liberte Over-the-Wire (OTW) delivery system. The Liberte¿ system comes in stent diameters of 2.25, 2.50, 2.75, 3.00, 3.50, 4.00, 4.50 and 5.00 mm and stent lengths of 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 32 mm. The stent is mounted on the balloon between two radiopaque markers which, in conjunction with fluoroscopy, aid in the placement of the systems balloon segment and stent. The balloon enables high pressure inflations and can be used for post-stent dilatation.
“We take a patient-first approach to assessing the applicability of every recall and communicate to regulatory bodies in all geographies where the recalled device is sold,” Boston Scientific said in a statement to ICIJ. “We have coordinated several recalls across many countries in a timely manner,” the company said, adding that it complies with all national laws, which can often vary and require different processes for reporting information or taking action on recalls. The company said it uses a rigorous and uniform process to take action on recalls and that “when we initiate a field action (e.g. recall, safety alert), every customer who has received an affected product receives a communication that includes a letter for the physician.”
