Endologix’s Catheter Introducer Device Recall

In FDA REcalls on June 22, 2013 at 8:31 pm

The FDA designated an Endologix (NSDQ:ELGX) warning over a catheter introducer as a Class I recall, meaning the device could seriously injure or kill patients.

The Irvine, Calif.-based company received reports that the dilator component of its AFX introducer system can break off during procedures.

Endologix sent a letter to customers in Florida, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey and New York, the only states where the defective introducer system was distributed.
