Boston scientific recalls catheters

Dec 18, 2006 | Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal

Boston Scientific Corp. said it is voluntarily recalling 51 catheters in the United States.

The products that are affected are certain lots of the Mach 1 Guide Catheters. A catheter is a tube that enables delivery of medical devices to the heart to treat coronary artery disease.

Natick, Mass.based Boston Scientific (NYSE: BSX) said it determined the recalled catheters had resin strands that could detach and obstruct blood vessels, potentially causing stroke, heart attack or kidney problems. To date, no product complaints or injuries have been reported to Boston Scientific related to this issue, the company said in a statement.

The company said products affected by this recall were distributed only to hospitals in the United States and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been notified.
