The FDA has recalled the Endologix AFX device for safety reasons. These devices were used to treat aortic artery aneurysms by providing a “hose” for the blood to flow through so that it does not fill the aneurysm and cause it to burst. Due to a design failure, the AFX hose material can rupture and cause internal bleeding and other serious medical complications. Emergency surgery is required to stop the bleeding.
If you or someone you know were implanted with an Endologix AAA repair device and underwent surgery for a leaking aneurysm, please give us a call to discuss a potential claim. You can find more information about the Endologix AFX recall here, Class 1 Device Recall ENDOLOGIX AFX .
