Guidant Recalls Catheter Used To Unclog Arteries

Feb 16, 2005 | AP

Guidant Corp. on Tuesday said it is recalling a catheter used to unclog arteries because of potential leaks.

The Indianapolis-based medical technology company said it withdrew its Voyager Coronary Dilatation Catheters of sizes 1.5 mm to 3.5 mm. Dilatation catheters use a balloon-like device to open clogged arteries.

According to Guidant's annual report released by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the withdrawal was voluntary but the company has contacted the Food and Drug Administration and international regulatory agencies.

"While the probability of a leak is low, the company is pursuing root cause analysis and corrective actions," Guidant said in its filing.
