Cordis Outback LTD Re-Entry Catheter is back


This CTO re-entry device allows the interventionalist to get back into the true lumen with reliable precision.According to Cordis, Outback helps reduce time under fluoroscopy – on average re-entry takes only eight minutes. There are a number of challenging arterial occlusions where outback re-entry catheter has proved indispensable,” said Dr Amman Bolia, Leicester Royal Infirmary, UK. Cordis Endovascular had recalled the Outback device voluntarily from the market. This proactive recall was because of a .27% incidence of failure of the piercing needle component to safely retract. The description of the event that triggered the recall was described in an FDA post in March, 2007.
