RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER

Recalling Firm: Medtronic Cardiovascular Revascularization & Surgical Therapy,
Brooklyn Park, MN, by letter dated April 2, 2010.

Manufacturer: Medtronic Mexico EG, Sonora, Mexico. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.

REASON

Medtronic received reports involving the V100D U-Clip where during handling, the release mechanism has become separated from the needle assembly. These instances of separation have occurred when pulling the clip through prosthetic material, or when grasping and releasing the clip using robotic instrumentation. While this issue does not impact performance of the clip once implanted, separation of the release mechanism during handling or deployment could result in the release of small components into the body.
