Enteryx Acid Reflux Treatment Recalled

Medical Treatment

If you were treated with the acid reflux drug, Enteryx, here's news that could make your stomach turn. Boston Scientific Corp. halted sales of the Enteryx drug injection kit, due to product misuse by doctors.

Enteryx is injected directly into the walls of the esophagus, helping block stomach acid in patients suffering from acid reflux. According to reports filed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), some patients suffered leakage, painful swelling and ulcers in the esophagus because doctors accidentally punctured the walls while injecting the drug.

Doctors were advised to discontinue using the injection kits immediately. Patients receiving injections within the last month should see their doctors for consultation.
