LifeStent Solo Vascular Stents are being recalled by Bard Peripheral Vascular due to a potential injury and fatality hazard posed by the products. When a person experiences lesions attributed to blood vessel constriction, he or she may receive this particular stent as a means to open the space within the blood vessel. Unfortunately, it has been discovered that the products may not be able to deploy once inserted or they could only be deployed partially. When this happens, an individual could face blood loss, a stroke, or a heart attack. It’s also possible that the patient could lose a limb or even die. Recall instructions reportedly started to go out to affected parties at the end of last month.
