Balloon Catheter Recall Conducted

Medtronic, the manufacturer of Covidien Trellis 6 and Trellis 8 balloon catheters, has announced that its voluntary recall has been classified by the FDA as a Class 1 Recall, the most serious type of recall.

The severity of the recall is warranted as the device intended to dissolve blood clots actually caused blood clots in the lungs.

If you or a loved one developed blood clots in the lungs following treatment to dissolve blood clots, please contact our experienced attorneys at (888) 606-5297 for a free consultation about your potential balloon catheter lawsuit.
