The ARROW Endurance Extended Dwell Peripheral Catheter System, a medical device used for short-term blood infusion therapies, has been recalled by its manufacturer due to risk of separation and leakage.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified the recall as a Class I recall, the most serious type.

According to the FDA, if a catheter separates while in a blood vessel, fragments could be left in the vascular system and migrate to other parts of the body. The defect can lead to the following health problems:

  • Blockage of blood vessels
  • Inadequate blood flow
  • Injury to blood vessels
  • Blood clots
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Heart attack
  • Death

The ARROW Endurance Extended Dwell Peripheral Catheter System was distributed to healthcare providers from October 26, 2018 until May 10, 2023. It was manufactured by Teleflex and Arrow International.
