Tiger Paw Surgical Staple Recall

The Tiger Paw II was recalled May 7, 2015, after Maquet received at least 51 adverse event reports — including one death — associated with the tool, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). “Incomplete closure of the TigerPaw System II may result in tissue tears and/or bleeding, including a possible tear on the left atrial wall (top left chamber) during use of the device,” FDA said.

4,154 of the instruments, which are used to close tissue in the left atrial appendage of the heart, were distributed to 223 medical facilities from April 1, 2013 to March 23, 2015. The recall affects all lots of the Tiger Paw System II with the following part and serial numbers:

  • C-TP-1507 (7 connectors)
  • C-TP-1509 (9 connectors)

On March 30, 2015, Maquet sent an “Urgent Medical Device Recall (Removal) Immediate Action Required” letter to all customers (medical facilities) who purchased the Tiger Paw II surgical staple. Customers were instructed to examine their inventory for any recalled devices, remove and quarantine them, and contact the company.
