Teleflex initiated this voluntary Field Safety Corrective Action on September 20, 2021 due to reports received indicating that the PTD’s Inner lumen (orange) detached from the device’s basket. Arrow-Trerotola™ Over-The-Wire PTD® Kit Percutaneous Thrombolytic Device: 7FR manufactured from October 2019 through July 2021 are subject to the recall.

If the orange inner lumen detaches from the basket, health consequences depend upon whether, and where, the fractured tip component embolizes. In most cases, the embolization is local to the treatment target site, allowing retrieval with an additional intervention and consequent delay of therapy. In some cases, the embolization could be central or peripheral and result in, or threaten to cause, local ischemia. Such an occurrence could require a more complex catheter-based intervention for retrieval, or rarely, surgical retrieval. The lumen component is radio-opaque.

As of November 2021, a total of seven customer complaints have been received for this issue. In one complaint, a snare was used by the clinician to retrieve the detached lumen from the patient. No long-term patient complications have been reported.

On November 18, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified the recall of Arrow-Trerotola™ Over-The-Wire PTD® Kit Percutaneous Thrombolytic Device: 7FR as a Class I recall. FDA defines a Class I recall as, “a situation in which there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.”
