Venture Catheter Lawsuit Lawyer

Our law firm is currently handling lawsuits on behalf of individuals who have suffered injury or death as a result of using a Venture Catheter. Lawsuits against the manufacturer, Vascular Solutions, Inc., claim that the Venture Catheter used during catherization procedures could lead to blood clots, embolism, and death.

What Do We Know about Venture Catheter Lawsuits?

The Venture Catheter allows a physician to operate a guidewire through blood vessels during catherization in the vascular system. The guidewire can be manipulated to enter veins and arteries in the arms, legs, feet, hands, and heart. A flexible tip on the catheter makes it possible for the device to reach blood vessels and navigate around inaccessible corners.

In 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of over 7,000 Venture Catheters due to the risk that the tip of the catheter may detach during use. This rupture can cause excess material to enter veins and create blood clots, leading to other serious injuries.

Venture Catheter Injuries

If the Venture Catheter separates during a procedure, serious complications can occur. A patient may suffer from blood clots, embolism in vital organs, emergency surgery, blood loss, or death.

Venture Catheter Recalls and FDA Alerts

The FDA announced a Class I recall of thousands of Venture Catheters in the United States in response to the possibility of the catheter tip breaking and allowing material to travel throughout the body. A Class I recall is the most serious action taken by the FDA. The recall pertained to the following devices:

  • Venture RX Catheter (Model 5820)
  • Venture OTW (Model 5821)
  • Venture CS Catheter (Model 5822)

The manufacturer issued a field safety notice in April 2017 to voluntarily remove Venture Catheters after internal reviews revealed that there is a risk of the catheter splitting.
