Process control
Action On 9/8/22, correction notices were distributed to customers who were asked to do the following: 1) Read and share the information in the notice with all device users. 2) continue to follow the steps of the IFU (eifu.abbottvascular.com) that is also summarized in the correction notice. It details the most relevant steps to aid in optimal function of the Clip locking mechanism, thereby reducing the probability of EFAA failure and COWL to occur. 3) Complete and return the Acknowledgement Form. 4) If you have transferred affected products to other centers, inform those centers of this notice. The recalling firm is working on producing new lots with updated manufacturing processing and raw material to mitigate the EFAA/COWL events. They are also using the correction notice to emphasize the most relevant sections of the IFU that can reduce occurrence. Customers with questions can contact Customer Service at 1800-544-1664.
