The Food and Drug Administration FDA has initiated a Class I recall of Stryker Sustainability Solutions Angiodynamics Soft-Vu Omni Flush Angiographic Catheters due to reports of the tips of these catheters coming loose while inside the body. This can cause disastrous effects throughout the body and may require immediate surgery to remove the device. It may also lead to internal organ injury, stroke, kidney failure, intestinal failure, and possibly death.

The device was distributed from January 2004 – December 2008 and is being recalled from the following states: California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Utah, and Washington.
