Miller Mikro-Tip Angiographic Catheters Recalled in California, District of Columbia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, and Pennsylvania
On April 1, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted that the Miller Human Use High Injection Angiographic Catheters were recalled for potential debris in the catheter. The particles or debris in the catheter could become dislodged, travel throughout the body and cause an emboli or obstruction in blood vessels, tissue, organs or limbs. Any disruption in blood flow to vital organs can cause a heart attack or myocardial infarction, stroke, limb ischemia, blindness, liver or kidney failure, or even death.
This type of catheter is used in interventional radiology and interventional cardiology studies. It not only is used to measure pressure within the blood vessels, it can also be used to administer or inject radiopaque or contrast material into the body for better view of the blood vessels.
Miller contacted hospital risk managers, radiologists, cardiologists and other healthcare providers notifying them of the recall.
