Multicath Expert 5 Lumen central venous catheter medical device alert


The MHRA have published on the risk of incorrect placement of a central venous catheter and delay to treatment. This is due to a manufacturing problem resulting in:

  • Decreased length of the catheter. The catheter tip may not reach the desired position during placement.
  • Catheters with four lumens (instead of five). This may then require additional catheter or extension sets after placement.
