  • Royal Flush® Plus Beacon® Tip High-Flow Catheters (Catalog Prefix HNR4.0)
  • Slip-Cath® Beacon® Tip Catheters (Catalog Prefix SCBR5.0)

  • "The FDA has deemed this a Class I recall, which indicates that the affected Cook Beacon Tip Catheters may cause serious injury and even death. In light of the devastating health consequences potentially associated with these devices, our attorneys thought it prudent to take steps to provide affected patients and their families with important information about their legal rights," says Sandy A. Liebhard, a partner at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices.

    Cook Beacon Tip Angiograph Catheter Recall
    Cook Beacon Tip Angiograph Catheters are used to inject contrast dye into the blood vessels of the heart. This allows doctors to obtain detailed x-rays so that they may determine how well blood is flowing within the heart. According to the American Heart Association, coronary angiograph procedures are generally associated with a low rate of complications.

    According to the FDA, the devices included in the Cook Beacon Tip Catheter recall may be vulnerable to splitting or separating at the tip. Tip splitting can result in loss of device function, while separation may occlude blood flow to end organs and require medical intervention to retrieve the separated section. Cook Medical has received 26 reports of tip splitting or separation related to these products, 14 of which resulted in adverse events. The FDA requires medical device manufacturers to report adverse events related to their products if they are considered serious, including those that result in hospitalization, permanent damage or disability, a need for medical intervention, or death.

    Patients who experienced complications related to a malfunctioning Cook Beacon Tip Catheter may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
