Manufacturer Narrative
Pharmacovigilance comments: the serious adverse event of implant site swelling was considered expected and possibly related to the treatment. Serious criteria include the need for multiple medical interventions and long standing event suggestive of permanent damage. The non-serious adverse events of sinusitis and implant site hypersensitivity, mass, pain, and warmth were considered expected and possibly related to the treatment. Potential contributory factors for the long standing adverse event of implant site swelling includes the reported allergy, which required therapeutic control with prednisolone. Alternative etiologies for sinusitis may include the above-mentioned hypersensitivity or intercurrent community acquired infections. The case meets the criteria for expedited reporting to the regulatory authorities. Engineering evaluation: the information in this single case does not suggest involvement of a nonconforming product or quality problem and will not initiate a corrective or preventive action. Mfr. Narrative: lot number was not reported.
Event Description
Case reference number (b)(4) is a spontaneous report sent on 10-jul-2020 by a physician and which refers to a female patient of an unknown age. The patient's medical history included laser treatment for cholesterol spots under the eyes. No information about history of allergies or previous filler treatments has been provided. On (b)(6) 2019, the patient received treatment with restylane lyft lidocaine to cheekbones (unknown amount, lot number, injection technique and needle type). The patient received an injection by the same physician who had performed her laser treatment. On an unknown date in (b)(6) 2019, patient experienced sinusitis(sinusitis), and received treatment with antibiotics and cortisone [cortisone] for 3 days, from (b)(6) 2019, according to her physician's prescription. On (b)(6) 2019, 3 weeks after the filler treatment, from the moment cortisone was stopped, the patient experienced an important symmetric face swelling (implant site swelling). The patient specified that she mentioned this episode, apparently without link, but disturbing, considering the immediate reaction following cortisone withdrawal. On (b)(6) 2019, the patient also experienced hard balls(implant site mass), painful (implant site pain) when touched and feeling of heat(implant site warmth). As corrective treatment, the patient took unspecified antihistamines and cortisone. According to the patient, cortisone was efficient and swelling disappeared in 2-3 days. On an unknown date, but during the sanitary containment, the patient experienced several face swelling episodes, mostly non symmetric, of her cheekbones and under the eyes. On (b)(6) 2019, the patient consulted her physician to explain her issues and the physician diagnosed a hyaluronic acid allergy(implant site hypersensitivity). As corrective treatment, the physician prescribed solupred [prednisolone] 20 mg, 3 per day during 3 days, 2 per day during 5 days, 1 per day during 8 days, and finally 1, every other day, during 15 days. The patient tried to reduce cortisone dosage to decrease from 20 mg per day to 10 mg per day and, again, she experienced a face swelling. On (b)(6) 2020, the patient consulted the physician to talk about the issue and performed a check-up. She told the physician that the swelling appeared each time she tried to take less cortisone and the physician advised to keep on taking it. The same day, the patient received bocouture [bocouture] 50 (botulinic toxin) in the glabellar area. She mentioned that she kept taking cortisone at 20 mg per day dosage and tried to decrease to 10 mg per day. But when she decreased, there was a decreased hard ball, painful when touched, with a heat feeling. She found it very annoying and non-aesthetic. On (b)(6) 2020, patient sent an email to physician. It was mentioned that, patient was still taking cortisone 20 mg each morning and trying to take 10 mg, but each time by now, she had a reaction, yet less important, which occurred. Patient was not happy to take cortisone for such a long time and asked for new prescription. On (b)(6) 2020, physician sent a prescription, solupred 10 mg 1 per day during 2 months. During the sanitary containment, very stressful time already, she experienced several face swelling episodes, mostly non symmetric, with hard balls, painful when touched, with heat feeling, and very non aesthetic, each times the cortisone dosage was decreased. The patient finally decided to stop the treatment beginning of (b)(6) 2020, because she feared the negative effect of cortisone intake on long term. It had been already 5 months. Since then she regularly experienced swelling episodes of her cheekbones and under the eyes (which can create large bags under the eyes), always non symmetric (one side and then the other) and she admitted it was a nightmare. It was awful and she had to deal with the fact that she was back to work and faced the eyes of the others. She thought that finally it damaged her face, which was the opposite of the effect desired. However, she still refused to take cortisone again, and swelling usually disappeared in 2 days. She kept a diary of the swelling and sent us an extract with the dates and pictures. Pictures were taken on (b)(6) 2019, (b)(6) 2020. The pictures flatten the swelling effect, but it was not pretty to see, according to the patient. Outcome at the time of the report: swelling was not recovered/not resolved. Hard balls was recovered/resolved. Painful was recovered/resolved. Feeling of heat was recovered/resolved. Hyaluronic acid allergy was not recovered/not resolved. Sinusitis was unknown.
