Model Number 6949
Device Problems Failure to Capture; Fracture; High impedance; Over-Sensing

Event Description

Asku.

 
Event Description

It was reported that the lead fractured and the lead integrity alert triggered. It was further reported that the patient's heart rhythm was asystolic and the patient was very symptomatic. Additionally, it was reported that the lead was oversensing, had no capture and had high impedance. The lead was capped and replaced. Further information received indicated the patient subsequently died one day after the lead was capped due to congestive heart failure, electromechanical disassociation and cardiac arrest.

 
Event Description

 
Manufacturer Narrative

The initial reported event was received on (b)(6) 2011. Of note, the reportable malfunction and/or serious injury of lead fracture, oversensing, no capture and high impedance is normally submitted via a remedial action exemption report that would have been submitted (b)(6) 2011. Information was subsequently received on (b)(6) 2011 and revealed the patient died. As there is new information that reasonably suggests the device has or may have caused or contributed to a patient death, this event no longer qualifies for remedial action exemption reporting and is therefore being submitted as a 30-day report. The information submitted reflects all relevant data received. If additional relevant information is received, a supplemental report will be submitted. This event is one of two reports associated with the death of this patient. Reference report numbers: 2649622000-2011-07148, 2647346000-2011-00543, 2649622000-2011-07149. Evaluation summary: (b)(4) the full lead was returned, analyzed and the proximal conductor was fractured. It was noted that the distal and defibrillation coil conductor were distorted, there was blood/body fluid on the distal conductor (not obstructed), there was a fracture of the defibrillation conductor, outer tubing was kinked/buckled, outer insulation was melted, outer tubing overlay was melted and had environmental stress cracking, outer tubing overlay had an environmental stress cracking breach/breach (non-electrical), outer insulation was breached cut, there was a white substance on the exposed defibrillation coil/ outer overlay tubing/tip electrode, the outer insulation had a cosmetic depression and the lead was stretched.
