What’s the Problem?

According to an FDA Recall Letter dated 3/24/21, this action affects:

  • Affinity Pixie Oxygenator and Cardiotomy/Venous Reservoir with Balance Biosurface — Model BBP241 — Lot 13340434
  • Perfusion Tubing Packs built with the affected Affinity Pixie CVR — Models BB10H89R4, HY10J00R6, HY11B40R1 — Lots 220265395, 220768819, 220911913

Medtronic on Feb. 4, 2021, sent an Urgent Medical Device Recall notification to all affected customers instructing them to quarantine all unused affected products and return them to the company. The recalled oxygenators were distributed in the U.S. between April 29, 2020 and November 20, 2020.

The Medtronic Affinity Pixie Oxygenator and Cardiotomy/Venous Reservoir with Balance Biosurface are used on babies and small pediatric patients requiring cardiopulmonary bypass. The oxygenator adds oxygen to the blood and removes carbon dioxide. The venous reservoir is used to improve blood circulation during the bypass procedure.

This is an FDA Class I recall, the most serious type of recall. “Use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death,” the agency said.
