Cook Medical Beacon Tip Angiographic Catheter Recall

On July 2, 2015 the FDA issued a Class I recall of Cook Medical’s Beacon Tip Angiographic Catheters. More than 95,000 catheters, distributed between June 2013 and June 2015, were included in the recall. An FDA Class I recall signifies that use of the recalled device may cause serious injury or death.

Beacn Tip Angiographic Catheters are used in medical imaging procedures to view the inside of blood vessels and organs.

The recall pertain to certain version of the following: 

  • Royal Flush Plus Beacon Tip High-Flow Catheters
  • Torcon NB Advantage Beacon Tip Catheters
  • Slip-Cath Beacon TIp Catheters

Cook Medical reported that the tips were splitting or separating from the catheters and that surgical intervention may be required to retrieve the separated segment. Tip splitting is incredibly dangerous and may lead to severe injury or even death if the tip restricts blood flow to a vital organ.
