RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Alpha Omega Services, Inc, Bellflower, CA, by letters beginning February 22, 2006, firm initiated recall is ongoing/
REASON
There is a possibility that the diameter of the catheter does not meet specifications. As a result it may not be possible to correctly connect the catheter to a VariSource Quick Connect. This would prevent any treatment. Furthermore, since the problem would not be apparent until after the catheter has been implanted an unnecessary surgical implantation procedure would have taken place.
