  • Causa
    It was identified that the neuroform atlas pouch and carton label references the incorrect measurement in millimeters for the minimum catheter diameter. the minimum catheter diameter is correctly listed as 0.0165 inches on both product labels, but incorrectly converted to millimetres as 0.69mm. the correct conversion value is 0.42. the labelling discrepancy could lead to a physician selecting a catheter which is too large. the hazard associated with this is that the stent would prematurely deploy during transfer into the catheter. the result to the patient being extended procedure/ additional treatment required and increased time under anaesthesia. no adverse health consequences are anticipated. there is no risk to patients associated with previous use of affected devices.
