November 17, 2015: Stryker Drainage Set Catheter May Break During Insertion into Lungs

Stryker Drainage Set Catheter Recall News

Due to a serious and possibly lethal device flaw, Stryker Sustainability Solutions’ “Fuhrman Pleural/Pneumopericardial Drainage Set” was subject to a Class I Recall. The Stryker Drainage Set, which is used “to remove air from the sac (pericardium) surrounding the heart, or to drain air or fluid from thin covering (pleural cavity) that protects the lungs,” includes a catheter that is snaked into the patient’s chest.

The Stryker Drainage Set Catheter recall was initiated after two reports of this catheter having broken off in the pleural cavity while inserting the device into the patient. Both cases were severe and warranted medical intervention.
