Balloon Catheter Recall

Balloon Catheter RecallCordis Dura Star RX, Fire Star RX PTCA Balloon Catheters

Cordis Corporation and the FDA informed healthcare professionals of a Class I Recall of all Fire Star and Dura Star balloon catheters, lots 13173912 through 13315455, plus 52 additional lots above 13315455.

Balloon catheters are used in a medical procedure (known as angioplasty) to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels or arteries of the heart. The product has a potential for slow deflation or no deflation of the angioplasty balloon when inserted into the artery or other blood vessels. This may potentially result in: a total blockage of the artery or blood vessels, a change in the heart rate or heart rhythm, injury to the heart artery, a heart attack, need for surgical intervention or even death.

Cellino & Barnes is evaluating cases of people who may have suffered one of the following:

  1. heart attack during coronary angioplasty;
  2. sudden death during coronary angioplasty; or
  3. emergency by-pass surgery for their coronary angioplasty.

If you or a loved one falls into one of the above-mentioned categories, please call us at (800) 888-8888, or contact us online.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
