Editor's Note

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on January 30 identified the recall by Medtronic of its Mahurkar Acute Dual Lumen High Flow (13.5 French) Hemodialysis Catheters (Mahurkar QPlus) as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated because of a potential catheter hub defect that may cause leaks across the catheter’s tubes.

There have been reports of two injuries and no deaths related to this issue.

Distribution dates were March 19, 2022, to September 2, 2022.
