  • Causa
    Cordis has determined that certain lots of the s.M.A.R.T. flex vascular stent system have a potential for cracked luer hubs, due to a manufacturing error.The luer hub is used to inject contrast/saline during procedure preparation, prior to insertion of the stent system into the patient. a cracked hub could result in leakage of saline, or in the worst case, inability to flush the outer sheath of the catheter. the potential medical consequence would be a delay in device preparation, resulting in the need to prepare a replacement device for use. cordis does not anticipate any other patient impact.
  • Acción
    Cordis is advising users to inspect stock and quarantine any remaining units of the affected product for return.
