Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheaths Recall Issued After Risk Found For Excessive Bleeding, Perforations Of Arteries, Veins, And Even Death.
With the recall of Bard’s Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath, Southern Med Law has launched a Bard Halo One thin-walled guiding sheath recall lawsuit information webpage to provide public information on the latest developments concerning the medical device. The FDA issued a Class I recall notice after Bard Peripheral Vascular Inc. recently issued a recall of the sheath due to the device’s potential to kink, and its tip may become damaged during a procedure with a risk for excessive bleeding, perforations of arteries and veins, and even death. Using the recalled sheath could also cause procedures to take longer or require additional surgery to remove detached components from a patient.
Southern Med Law is now investigating potential Bard Halo Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath Recall Lawsuit claims. The firm’s attorneys are experienced in handling complex medical and legal questions concerning defective medical devices, such as Bard’s recalled sheath.

“Our firm continues to field inquiries from men and women who have been injured by medical devices and are suffering adverse side effects from these products,” says Dr. Blaudeau, founder of Southern Med Law.
The Bard Halo Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath guides other interventional and diagnostic devices into veins and arteries through an incision made on a patient’s leg. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified Bard’s recall as a Class I recall, which is the agency’s most serious type of recall because the devices may cause serious injuries or death. Side effects associated with the sheath include parts left in the body, excessive bleeding, internal tears of veins, and perforation of arteries.
Bard Peripheral Vascular Inc. initiated the recall in December and sent an Urgent Medical Device Recall Notification letter in January to tell healthcare facilities and distributors to stop using the products and remove them from their shelves. According to Bard, the recalled devices have products codes of HAL545, HAL590, and HAL510F, and were made between April 12, 2016 to July 7, 2016. In addition, the sheaths were distributed from June 24, 2016 to July 12, 2016 in Arizona, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Texas, Utah, and Washington.
In addition to the recall, court documents indicate Bard Peripheral Vascular Inc. is named along with C.R. Bard as a defendant in over 1,300 Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) lawsuits. Bard Peripheral designs, tests, markets, labels and conducts post-market surveillance of Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters for C.R. Bard. The lawsuits pending in the federal court in Arizona involve Bard’s Recovery IVC filters and G2 IVC filters that are designed to trap blood clots and prevent them from reaching the lungs. The IVC filter complaints purport Bard’s IVC filters can migrate, fracture, perforate the heart and lungs, and the components can detach. Plaintiffs allege Bard failed to adequately warn about the dangers associated with its IVC filters. (In Re: Bard IVC Filters Product Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2641)
