TGA Recall Reference RC-2014-RN-00365-1
Product Name/Description Datascope System 98/98XT, CS100/CS100i and CS300 Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumps (IABP)

ARTG Number: 118266
Recall Action Level Hospital
Recall Action Classification Class I
Recall Action Commencement Date 27/03/2014
Responsible Entity Maquet Australia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue The fan assembly for specific System 98/98XT, CS100/CS100i and CS300 IABPs could potentially contain a misshapen retaining ring. This retaining ring could disengage within the fan assembly, causing the fan to stop rotating, which causes the power supply to overheat and the IABP to shut down without any visual or audible warning. Patients receiving IABP therapy are in critical condition and a sudden interruption of therapy could result in unsafe haemodynamic instability.
Recall Action Recall for Product Correction
Recall Action Instructions Clinicians are instructed to not leave the patient unattended during IABP therapy. Maquet is reminding users of the current warning in the IABP operating instructions ie, the patient balloon should not remain inactive in the patient (i.e., no inflating or deflating) for more than 30 minutes, due to the potential for thrombus formation. In the unlikely event that this situation was to occur, transfer the patient to an alternative Datascope IABP. If an alternative Datascope IABP is unavailable; manually inflate the IAB with air or helium and immediately aspirate.

A Maquet Service Representative will contact hospitals to schedule the replacement of the fan assembly.
