Hemospray® is back


Hemospray Endoscopic Hemostat has returned to the market in Australia and is available to order.

In January, Cook Medical initiated a voluntary global recall of Hemospray Endoscopic Hemostat after receiving complaints that the handle and/or activation knob had cracked or broken when the device was activated. The recall applied to all lots manufactured from 16 January  2017 to 15 January 2020.

Cook Medical has implemented a new production test to address concerns with potential cracking or breaking of the activation knob. Now 100% of the activation knob components are inspected to ensure that they exceed worst-case forces applied to the activation knob during activation of the device. No changes have been made to the Hemospray Endoscopic Hemostat device’s delivery system or functionality.
