EndoSonics voluntarily recalls imaging catheters:
This article was originally published in Clinica
EndoSonics has voluntarily recalled around 200 MegaSonics imaging catheters from the US market, after early production lots did not meet labelled claims for rated burst pressure. The Rancho Cordova, California-based company says there have been no reports of patient injury, but it is withdrawing products to ensure patient safety. EndoSonics says it has taken corrective action and resumed production of the catheters. As a result, EndoSonics' first-quarter revenue will be down by around $200,000.
