Cook Medical has initiated a voluntary recall of catheters with Beacon® Tip technology. According to the company, these tips can split or fracture following polymer degradation. This recall follows 30 consumer complaints and includes all lots and sizes of catheters with Beacon Tip technology. The company reports that most complaints were made before patient contact and no injury has yet been recorded. However, tip separation can lead to loss of device function and a host of medical complications, some of which could be serious.
As with all potentially defective medical equipment, it is important that patients with the Cook Medical catheters included in this recall discontinue use right away. If you sustain injury from this or any other medical device, it is equally important that you call our Minneapolis office at 612-436-5026 to schedule a free case evaluation and learn more about your rights.
