Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
BSC has noted a potential inability to cut and remove polyps for these lots/batches. potential consequences related to the snares not performing as intended would be a prolonged procedure duration, tissue damage and/or self-limited bleeding. The most severe potential injury would include immediate or delayed hemorrhage and/or perforation requiring intervention up to and including open surgery; the likelihood of these severe injuries occurring is remote and, to date, have not been reported as a complaint. The potential inability to cut may also lead to inadequate removal of target tissue.
