Medtronic, FDA Recall Innervision and BioGlide Catheters

Medtronic and the FDA have notified healthcare professionals about a Class I recall of the Innervision Snap Shunt Ventricular Catheter, BioGlide and Snap Shunt Ventricular Catheter, due to the possibility that the ventricular catheter may become detached from the snap base assembly after implantation and may require emergency corrective surgery.

The ventricular catheters are part of a surgically implanted system that redirects excess fluid from the brain to another part of the body.

The recalled product was distributed from April 29, 2004 through December 12, 2008. Medtronic sent their customers a recall notice on February 13, 2009.
