ELSO Equipment Recall Survey Results

HLS Set Advanced (disposable in the Cardiohelp System)

On Feb 13, 2023, Getinge initiated a voluntary Medical Device Correction for HLS Set Advanced due to insufficient evidence of packaging sterility. Getinge has not received any reports of complaints or adverse events due to this issue. There are provisions in the letter to allow continued use of this product should there be no alternative product and supply continues to be available through allocation. The FDA designated this a Class II recall. The letter was updated with additional information on June 27. Getinge expects packaging updates to be validated and implemented in late 2023 – H1 2024.


Quadrox-iD Adult, Quadrox-iD Pediatric and other products

On May 19, 2023, Getinge initiated a voluntary Medical Device Removal for Quadrox-iD Adult/Pediatric and other product due to a risk of potentially compromised packaging sterility. Getinge is requesting that customers return product. Unaffected product is expected to be available in late 2023 – H1 2024 once the packaging is redesigned and revalidate. The FDA designated this a Class II recall.


Note: The FDA definition of “recall” includes corrections where product is not being removed from customer locations. A Class II recall is defined as “a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.”


Outside the US

The situation varies greatly by region/country. Please contact your local Getinge representative for more information.
