  • Causa
    Boston scientific is recalling certain lots of 9fr acuity pro coronary sinus outer guide catheters due to potential for separation of the proximal handle from the shaft. boston scientific's investigation concluded that if the hub and shaft are aligned off-centre in the bonding equipment during manufacturing, the result may be a reduced bond, which may separate during cutting. the affected products were manufactured during the time period when the equipment was likely to be misaligned.The most serious injury foreseeable with unexpected hub detachment is a moderate delay in the procedure to reposition a dislodged lead. boston scientific has received reports of handle separations during the cut and removal process; there have been no reports of patient harm.

    “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.”
