QUOTED. 7 June 2021. Medtronic.
Medtronic has issued two recalls in the past few months for HeartWare LVDs due to recorded deaths and adverse events, but after further analyses has decided to pull it off the market altogether. The company said it would partner with Abbott and regulatory bodies to find a way forward for patients.
“Medtronic is working closely with other stakeholders including Abbott, which manufactures the HeartMate 3 LVAD device, and with regulatory bodies globally, to help ensure that alternative treatment options are available for patients who may be candidates for a LVAD device.” – Medtronic
