Marshall Products is undertaking a full recall of its laryngeal airway devices (LADs), in response to reports of cuff failures during patient use. It is a setback for the Bath, UK company, as its LAD is a new product that was being supplied to the National Health Service for evaluation. The device failures were caused by leakages in some pilot balloon valves, according to a Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) alert issued yesterday (August 27 2003).
