Flush Syringes due to a potential link to Burkholderia cepacia bloodstream infections with the product.

If a patient is having symptoms, contact your health care provider.
10/04/2016 06:48 PM EDTOn September 16, 2016, Vascular Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:VASC), initiated a nationwide recall of Twin-Pass Dual Access catheters used in catheterization procedures. All unexpired lots of the product have been recalled because there is a potential for excess manufacturing material to remain at the tip of the catheter or within the distal portion of the rapid exchange lumen. It is possible that the excess material may separate from the catheter during use and pose a potential risk of embolism, which could result in serious injury or death. No injuries have been reported in association with this issue to date.
