  • Causa
    Cook medical has identified a labelling issue with the fusion pushing catheter. the graphic on the product label on the fs-pc-7 device shows the outer diameter (od) of the pushing catheter is 7fr. however, the od of the pushing catheter for the fs-pc-7 device is 6fr; therefore the od has been incorrectly represented on the label. this issue impacts the product label only.The device has always been manufactured to the correct specification (6fr) and has been shown in design verification and validation during simulated use testing that it can be effectively used with a 7fr stent (as indicated on the label that it can be used with a 7fr stent).To date, there have been no complaints or reports of injury/illness due to this issue.
