AngioDynamics is aware that Stryker Sustainability Solutions has initiated a recall on certain resterilized AngioDynamics Soft-Vu Angiographic Catheters. No Soft-Vu angiographic catheters sold directly by AngioDynamics are being recalled. The Soft-Vu catheter line is intended and indicated for single use.

The open-but-unused program includes repackaging, relabeling and resterilizing unused or expired medical devices.
