Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Affected lots have the potential for a broken sled vane, which may cause the reload to misfire leading to non-functional staple line closure, transecting tissue without forming staples, and tissue hang-up. These conditions may be associated to a delay to treatment, unspecified infection, hemorrhage/blood loss/bleeding, failure to anastomose, peritonitis, sepsis, pneumothorax, tissue trauma, or death.
