Abiomed Heart Pump Recalled After Multiple Reports of Serious Injury

Abiomed is a medical device technology company owned by Johnson & Johnson. In late March 2024, the FDA issued a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall, for Abiomed Impella heart pumps after it received 129 reports of serious injuries, including 49 reports of death. The FDA stated that “the pump catheter may perforate (cut) the wall of the left ventricle in the heart. During operations, the Impella device could cut through the wall of the left ventricle.” The risk of serious injury is heightened for people who are undergoing procedures with the Impella Left Sided Blood Pumps, people who have anterior infarction (heart disease), elderly people and women.
