Venture Catheter Lawsuits

A catheter is a flexible device that is inserted into the body to access certain veins and arteries and to enable fluid transmission during surgical procedures. Thousands of Venture Catheters are subject to a recall due to excess material at the end of the catheter separating during procedures and potentially getting into the patient’s bloodstream. A patient could experience blood clots, embolisms and possibly death. Patients who have suffered these adverse effects have filed lawsuits against the manufacturer, Vascular Solutions.

What is Venture Catheter

The Venture Catheter is designed to direct a guidewire inside the body to enter veins and arteries throughout the body or to deliver fluids to vessels. The tip of the device can be angled up to 90 degrees to enable the catheter to move around narrow or difficult-to-access areas of the body.

What is Happening with Venture Catheter?

The FDA announced a Class I Recall of over 7,000 Venture Catheters sold in the United States. A Class I Recall is applied to products or devices that have a reasonable probability of causing significant adverse health events or death. The recall, which was issued in October 2017, affects the following models: Venture RX Catheter (Model 5820), Venture OTW (Model 5821), and Venture CS Catheter (Model 5822). The recalled devices were manufactured from May 7, 2015 to March 31, 2017.

The recall was initiated following the distribution of an “Urgent Medical Device Recall Letter” by Vascular Solutions in April 2017. The letter advised consumers to identify and isolate the affected products from the rest of their inventory for return to the manufacturer. The recall was announced because the product presented a risk of separating and entering into the bloodstream. The detached material from the catheter can then enter the lungs, heart or other organs and result in serious complications and death.
