Urgent JET 7 Xtra Flex Recall Issued by Penumbra
In December 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Penumbra, Inc. recalled all Penumbra Reperfusion Catheters with Xtra Flex Technology (Jet 7 Xtra Flex). The product recall was issued because of an increased risk of injury and death in stroke patients during procedures to remove blood clots. Health care providers have been informed not to use the JET 7 Xtra Flex catheter, to remove and quarantine all unused affected products in your inventory, and to return the affected products to Penumbra in accordance with Penumbra’s instructions.
The affected devices listed include all configurations of the following:
Reported Injuries Caused by Defective JET 7 Xtra Flex Catheters
The FDA received more than 200 medical device reports (MDRs) about device malfunctions to include “ballooning, expansion, rupture, breakage or complete separation, and exposure of internal support coils near the distal tip region of the JET 7 Xtra Flex catheter.”
When an expansion occurred, it caused the blood vessel to rupture resulting in serious complications and injuries. Some surgeons have also alleged that while they attempted to remove blood clots from stroke patients’ brains, the catheter would occasionally break or fray. This product defect would cost precious minutes during a critical point in a surgery to fix the fracture.
Serious injuries reported to the FDA included:
- Cerebral infarction
- Hemorrhagic stroke
- Vessel damage
