Recall Action Commencement Date 4/11/2016
Responsible Entity Medtronic Australasia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue Medtronic was recently notified that the manufacturer, Oscor has initiated a product recall for certain lots of their Adelante Breezeway 8F & 10F sheaths due to a potential for "a fragment of the sheath inner liner to come off during the insertion of the dilator during the preparation of the sheath prior to use." Medtronic sells the Oscor Adelante Breezeway 10F product as the ARRIVE Braided Transseptal Sheath. Oscor has received one complaint related to this issue, which did not result in patient injury. However, the risk for possible injury is a concern if the sheath is not properly flushed and tested with the dilator prior to use.
