Thomas Medical Products Inc. recalls its Safesheath Hemostatic Introducer System with Infusion Sideport

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.
