What is Happening with Sapien 3 Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Devices (TAVRs)?
In July 2019, Edwards Lifesciences notified patients that the balloons used in the delivery system of its TAVR devices have exploded in some patients. The recall affects all TAVR lots manufactured from January 23, 2018 to the present. The company issued an urgent field safety notice to alert users of the risks of stroke, bleeding, and surgical intervention associated with the device. The incidence of burst balloons appears to be triggered by excess inflation volume and rapid inflation conditions according to the manufacturer.
Following the manufacturer’s warning, the FDA issued a Class 1 recall of the TAVRs upon receiving reports of 17 injuries and one death. The recall notes the difficulty of retrieving the device once it has burst. A Class I recall is reserved for products that have the most serious adverse consequences, including death. A warning has also been added to the manufacturer’s label to warn of the risk of balloon rupture.
