INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A voluntary Urgent Medical Device recall has been issued throughout the United States by HeartWare International, Inc.

The recall issued covers older HeartWare Ventricular Assist System Controllers, which were distributed before the FDA approved them in 2012.

Medical personnel have been asked to identify patients who have the recalled devices, and to exchange the recalled devices for new devices under medical supervision.
