FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 11, 2014 – Covidien plc today announced that it has notified customers of a voluntary recall to address an issue with certain lots of its Pipeline™ Embolization Device and Alligator™ Retrieval Device where the polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coating applied to the delivery wire could delaminate and detach from the devices.

PTFE coating is used to reduce friction between devices and ease navigation through the vasculature. Delamination of the PTFE coating could potentially lead to embolic occlusion in the cerebral vasculature with the risk of stroke and/or death.

Covidien learned of this issue through internal product testing. The company has not received any reports of patient injuries to date related to this issue.

The Pipeline™ Embolization Device is indicated for the endovascular treatment of adults (22 years of age and older) with large or giant wide‐necked intracranial aneurysms in the internal carotid artery from the petrous to the superior hypophyseal segments. The Alligator Retrieval Device is intended for use in the peripheral and neuro‐vasculature for foreign body retrieval. Continue reading
