Product Detail

Product Description 13.5 mm x 60 mm BrainPath Sheath The NICO BrainPath is a family of products that consists of multiple sized reusable and re-sterilizable obturators with coordinating single patient use, disposable sheaths (three lengths available for each: 50mm, 60mm, and 75mm). The obturator and sheath are assembled in the OR immediately prior to use. These two components are held together by an interference fit. The device when used as intended is designed to provide access to neurological tissues.
Recall Number Z-2201-2012
Classification Class II
Code Info REF: NN-8012 - LOT: 80345-TD00214 (manufactured on 11-April-2012)
Product Distributed Qty 15 devices (3 boxes, 5 devices per box)
Reason For Recall BrainPath sheaths were mislabeled. Sheaths which measure 50mm were labeled as 60mm. The length callout on the label does not match the actual length of the sheath within the packaging resulting in an improper fit as further explained below. This mislabeling was discovered on 29-June-2012 during a clinical case.
