FDA Class I Recall:

Vascu-Guard Patch Can May Cause Blood Clots or Stroke

In May of 2015, The FDA announced a Class I recall of several lots of the Vascu-Guard Patch after reports of difficulty in determining the smooth side from rough side of the product. Incorrect orientation of the patch with the rough side toward the bloodstream may increase the risk of post-operative stroke and blood clots (thrombosis). A Class I recall is the agency’s most serious type of recall, indicating that there is reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.

FDA Warning:

Baxter’s Vascu-Guard Patch May Cause Life-Threatening Complications

In September of 2016 the FDA issued a safety alert for the Vascu-Guard Patch, announcing that it had received numerous adverse event reports associated with its use during carotid endarterectomy (CEA). According to the agency, a number of incidents involving severe bleeding and hematomas were reported by Baxter in 2016. Three patient deaths that occurred shortly after CEA procedures may also be related to use of the patch.

“The FDA is concerned that the Vascu-Guard patch may not be performing as intended and that patients who are treated with the product may be at risk for serious adverse health consequences, such as severe bleeding, hematomas, and death. After CEA surgery in particular, arterial bleeding in the neck could rapidly lead to airway obstruction, hypoxia, diminished brain perfusion, stroke and/or cardiac arrest.”
