FDA, Thomas Medical Issue Class 1 Recall of Coronary Sinus Guide Systems

Washington, DC: The FDA and Thomas Medical Products Inc, notified healthcare professionals of a Class I Recall of certain lots of the product, tube-like devices placed into blood vessels to insert pacing or defibrillator wires and catheters into blood vessels.

The sheath tip may break off and separate while the sheath is inside a blood vessel. If this occurs, the sheath tip could move through the blood vessel into organs such as the lungs and heart or, less commonly, into arteries. From there, the broken tip could cause a blockage anywhere, including the brain or heart, leading to permanent injury, such as a stroke or heart attack, or even death.

Class 1 recalls are the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
