Quest Medical Recalls MPS Delivery Sets
Quest Medical is voluntarily recalling certain lots of three models of its Myocardial Protection System Delivery Sets, after reports of seal failures.
The sets are used to deliver whole blood, drugs or other solutions during open heart surgery. If a seal failure occurs during patient use, blood loss may occur. The recall covers selected lots of models 5001102, 5001102-AS and 7001102 manufactured between May 2015 and September 2015.
The company advises consumers with the affected lots to contact Quest Medical for instructions on how to return the product and request a replacement.
Quest has received 20 complaints involving seal failure that resulted in 16 instances of patient blood loss during surgery. — Michael Cipriano
