Yes. In February 2021, Medtronic issued a voluntary recall of their Valiant Navion Thoracic Stent Graft after receiving reports of user injuries.

To date, more than 4,000 Infuse lawsuits have been settled and a reported $300 million has been set aside to payout pending lawsuits.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries as a result of the Valiant Navion Thoracic Stent Graft, you may qualify to participate in the Medtronic stent system lawsuit.

What is the Medtronic Valiant Navion Thoracic Stent Graft?

The Valiant Navion is the third and latest generation of thoracic and endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) in a single system, with covered and bare stent options. The stent system is designed to treat a wide range of patient anatomies and all lesions of the descending thoracic aorta (DTA), including thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA), Type B aortic dissection (TBAD), intramural hematoma (IMH), penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer (PAU), and blunt thoracic aortic injury (BTAI). Approximately 14,000 people worldwide are implanted with the stent system.


How does the device work?

The system uses a delivery catheter containing the endovascular stent graft to insert a blood vessel (femoral artery) in the groin through a small cut. After being placed in the artery, the stent-graft expands and relieves the pressure on your aorta by providing a new pathway for blood flow. The Valiant Navion Thoracic Sent Graft System is used in surgeries involving a small cut in the groin instead of a bigger cut in the chest for minimal invasiveness. It intends to prevent the growth and rupture of lesions on patients’ aortas.


What to do with my recalled stent graft system?

Medtronic is requesting customers with affected products on hand to take the following actions:

Medtronic Stent System Injuries

The clinical study done on the Medtronic Valiant Navion Thoracic Stent Graft System displayed three patients who incurred fractures in their stents. More so, the recall noted two blood leaks and one patient death. The death was determined to be related to an aneurysm.

An in-depth look into the clinical study showed that seven out of 87 patients had enlarged stent rings beyond the design specification, though this complication has yet to be proven to cause injury. Since the recall was issued on February 17, Medtronic has received two additional complaints of patients from patients who were not included in the clinical trial. Both complaints were related to blood leaks.

Filing a Medtronic Stent System Lawsuit

The Civil Lawsuit Process is very time-consuming and requires keen attention to detail as well as extensive knowledge of legal jargon. It can be overwhelming for those who are already having to deal with coping with complications and trauma from their injuries.

With the help of your lawyer, you should begin gathering evidence that will support your claim in court. The amount of compensation that you may be awarded can fluctuate depending on your ability to provide evidence and prove the liability of another party for the injuries that you have suffered. Furthermore, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you attempted to treat your injuries to the best of your ability. Mitigation is a critical element to any personal injury claim. If you wait too long and the statute of limitations of your case expires, you may not be eligible to file a lawsuit or receive any compensation.
