The FDA has confirmed Avanos Medical's recall of its Cortrak*2 oral access device. 629 devices manufactured between 2016 until 2022 were recalls within the U.S., beginning on the 21st of March.

Avanos Medical Cortrak*2 helps clinicians place medical feeding tubes inside the stomach or small bowels of patients that need to be fed via the tube.

The recall of the system was due to the deaths and injuries of patients resulting from misplacement of nasocentric/nasogastric tubes. These tubes are used to aid in insertion. Incorrectly inserting a nasogastric tube or nasoenteric tube can result in grave injury or even death.

Avanos plans to give users current labeling, and also a confirmation of tube placement in accordance with the institutional guidelines.
