Overview

Venture® Catheters have a deflectable tip that can be angled up to 90º. This helps doctors steer guidewires around sharp corners in hard-to-reach blood vessels during coronary procedures in the heart and other parts of the vascular system. Two types of Venture Catheters are also used to deliver saline or diagnostic contrast dye for MRIs.

TFX Venture Catheter Recall

Teleflex Inc. (TFX) subsidiary Vascular Solutions Inc. issued a global recall for 4,679 Venture® Catheters because the tip can break off. The company sent an “Urgent Medical Device Recall” warning letter on April 25, 2017 and it was designated as a Class 1 recall by the FDA on June 22, 2017.

What products were recalled?

  • Venture® Rapid Exchange (RX) Catheter
  • Venture® Over-the-Wire (OTW) Catheter
  • Venture® Coronary Sinus (CS) Catheter

What is the problem?

Excess material in the tip of the catheter can separate when the catheter is inside a patient’s body. The material can travel in the bloodstream (called an “embolism”) until it gets stuck in a vital organ. This can result in severe injury, blood clots, organ damage, or death. No injuries or deaths have been reported as of June 2017.

What should I do?

Hospitals and clinics with the recalled catheters should remove them from inventory and send them back to Vascular Solutions Inc. For a complete list of recalled codes and lots, click here.
