FDA Determined

Process control
Action On March 23, 2020, the firm distributed "URGENT: MEDICAL DEVICE RECALL" letters to affected customers. Customers were notified of the risk of the catheter failing to deflate, which may ultimately lead to tip separation. Customers were asked to do the following: 1. Check your inventory and immediately quarantine any recalled devices. 2. Complete the form at the end of this letter. Please note that you must return the form even if you have no devices in inventory. 3. Scan the reply form and send it to recalls@lemaitre.com. 4. If you have recalled devices at your facility, LeMaitre Vascular, Inc. will send you instructions for returning the devices. 5. When the recalled devices have been received by LeMaitre Vascular, we will arrange for replacement material. 6. If you have transferred devices to another facility, please forward a copy of this recall letter to them. Customers with questions may contact the Senior Quality Engineer, at rlerer@lemaitre.com or 781-221-2266. ***Updated 8/21/20*** Firm added Lots OTW4180, OTW4187, OTW4198, OTW4202, OTW4218, OTW4246 to the recall. These lots were previously on hold in a warehouse in Germany, but in July they were mistakenly distributed to customers in Europe.
