Covidien Recalls and Discontinues All Duet TRS Reloads

Ennis & Ennis, P.A. Explains the Recent Recall of All Covidien Duet TRS Reloads
Aug. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- On August 21, 2012 Covidien announced a voluntary recall of all production lots for the Duet TRS Universal Straight and Articulating Single-Use Loading Units (SULU) and has discontinued manufacturing the subject devices altogether.  [1]

This recall was prompted after Covidien received one report that links the Duet TRS tissue reinforcement material to a post-operative injury after abdominal surgery.  Covidien concluded that the Duet TRS may have the potential to injure adjacent anatomical structures, which can cause potentially fatal post-operative complications.    

The affected product codes are DUET4535, DUET4535A, DUET4548, DUET4548A, DUET6035, DUET6035A, DUET6048 and DUET6048A.  

This recall is in addition to the recall announced January 16, 2012 relating to the contraindication of the device in the thoracic cavity after there were 13 incidents of serious injuries and three deaths reported. [2]
