Litigation Surrounding Pentax Gas/Water Valve Recall could be a viable path for people who have sustained significant harm due to this equipment. The OF-B194 Valve, employed with upper gastrointestinal (G.I.) endoscopes for administering carbon dioxide (CO2) into the body’s cavity, reportedly possesses a production flaw that could hinder the ability to stop the flow of CO2 gas. In such instances, individuals may experience serious health complications like peritonitis, perforations, sepsis, surgical intervention for bowel perforations, or even fatality.

What’s the Problem?

On September 16, 2013, Pentax Medical Company sent its customers an Urgent Device Recall Letter advising them of the manufacturing defect found with the company’s Gas/Water Valve, Model OF-B194. The letter advised customers of the potential adverse health consequences that may occur with the device, which have been reported to include:

  • peritonitis
  • perforations
  • sepsis
  • bowel perforations requiring surgical repair
  • death

Pentax has recommended that customers examine and quarantine their inventory of OF-B194 gas/water valves, notify their customers if they further distributed the devices, and return the products to the company for replacement valves.

Pentax Gas/Water Valves affected by this recall were made between April 2009 and August 2013, and distributed from April 2009 to September 2013. The model number (OF-B194) is stamped on the valve. Corrected valves have a circle before the model number (O OF-B194).
