The Carotid System is being recalled due to a risk of separation of the atraumatic distal tip of the sheathed delivery system in patients.
The System, which is used to treat patients with narrowed carotid arteries, includes a metal self-expanding stent preloaded on a delivery catheter.

Distribution dates were December 6, 2019, to February 8, 2021.Read More >>
