Abbott Implements Corrective Action for Heartmate 3 Heart Pump

Abbott Implements Corrective Action for Heartmate 3 Heart Pump

Abbott is communicating to physicians about a field corrective action related to the HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD). Abbott notified physicians and global regulatory bodies on April 5, 2018, that outflow graft twisting could occur post-implant in the HeartMate 3 LVAD, resulting in a persistent low flow alarm that may signal a potential safety risk to patients, such as low blood flow or clotting.

HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist System: Class I Recall - Due to Potential Malfunction that may Lead to Graft Occlusion

HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist System: Class I Recall - Due to Potential Malfunction that may Lead to Graft Occlusion

The class I recall is due to a malfunction in the device’s outflow graft assembly that may cause the outflow graft to twist and close up (occlusion) over time. Occlusion of the outflow graft can reduce or stop pump flow and set off a persistent low flow alarm in the system. A reduction in pump can lead to serious adverse events such as blood clots and death.
