  • Causa
    Stryker neurovascular has become aware that some units of the target nano detachable coils do not have the intended stretch resistance. the sutures inside the coil that provide stretch resistance may have been damaged during manufacturing which can lead to an increased occurrence of coil stretching.The most likely adverse health consequence from coil stretching is prolongation of the procedure, as the stretched coil needs to be removed from the patient and replaced. there is a potential of thrombus formation when the stretched coil is left exposed in the blood flow. additional intervention may be required to snare the stretched coil or pin it to the vessel wall with a stent if safe removal is not possible. this may result in thrombus or thromboembolism which can lead to stroke. there will be no long term adverse health consequence after a stretched coil is removed from the body.
