Thomas Medical Products manufactures the Safesheath Hemostatic Introducer System, which has been recalled from the market for causing serious injuries to unsuspecting patients. The sheaths are tube-like devices placed into blood vessels to allow insertion of defibrillator wires and catheters into blood vessels. The sheath tip may break off and separate while the sheath is inside a blood vessel. If this occurs, the sheath tip could move through the blood vessel into organs such as the lungs and heart. From there, the broken tip could cause a blockage anywhere, including the brain or heart, leading to permanent injury, such as a stroke or heart attack, or even death.
