Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Pumps manufactured with impellers from a subset of lots from a single supplier are failing to initially start, restart, or experiencing a delay in restart within the maximum number of restart attempts at a rate substantially higher than pump in the overall population.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Under Investigation by firm
Action During the week of 19-Nov-2020, Medtronic initiated global retrieval activities for 9 devices for consignees in possession of non-implanted devices according to Medtronic records. Consignees were either verbally directed by Medtronic Field Representatives to quarantine product based on serial number, or the product was retrieved from consigned inventory and returned to Medtronic for engineering evaluation. The firm followed this action with a letter disseminated on 12/04/2020. In the United States, beginning 18-Dec-2020, Medtronic initiated written consignee communications via UPS 2-day delivery to VAD Coordinators and following physicians identified as having affected product and/or patients with an implanted device in the affected population. In the United States, beginning 23-Dec-2020, Medtronic is also initiating written communication, via UPS 2-day delivery, to inform all accounts who have previously purchased a Medtronic HVAD Pump of the issue. Update 06/01/2022: In the United States, beginning 18-May-2022, Medtronic initiated a verbal communication to update physicians who follow patients that are implanted with a HVAD pump from the subset of devices with a higher rate of failing to restart (first communicated in Dec 2020) that controllers with an unapproved software algorithm that may assist in restarting the HVAD pump and will be made available to sites to use, in the event a standard controller does not restart the pump after a pump is stopped. Medtronic followed up with a written communication via two day tracked mailing on 01-Jun-2022. Following physicians are asked to confirm receipt of the written communication. Medtronic posted the associated Product Performance Advisory on Medtronic.com (https://www.medtronic.com/content/dam/medtronic-com/global/HCP/Documents/hvad-urgent-medical-device-notice-update-june-2022.pdf), as a June 2022 Update to December 2020: HeartWare Ventricular Assist Device (HVAD).

1 A record in this database is created when a firm initiates a correction or removal action. The record is updated if the FDA identifies a violation and classifies the action as a recall, and it is updated for a final time when the recall is terminated. Learn more about medical device recalls.
2 Per FDA policy, recall cause determinations are subject to modification up to the point of termination of the recall.
3 The manufacturer has initiated the recall and not all products have been corrected or removed. This record will be updated as the status changes.
