OriGen Biomedical Issues Nationwide Recall of OriGen VV13F Reinforced Dual Lumen ECMO Catheters

On March 30, 2015, OriGen Biomedical issued a recall for certain W13F Reinforced Dual Lumen ECMO Catheters. These catheters are used during life support procedures at intensive care hospitals for children and infants. The catheters were supposed to allow blood to be drained and re-infused in the internal jugular vein, but the catheters have been found to have the potential for separation of the tube and hub which could cause serious permanent injury to the child. According to the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) website, at least one person has been reported to have suffered this kind of serious injury as a result of this product failure.
