Manufacturer Narrative
It has not been possible to further investigate or evaluate this alleged event based on the limited information and/or no device failure provided to date. Catalog # is unknown but referred to as celect. Occupation: non-healthcare professional. Investigation: the following allegations have been investigated: fracture, organ/vena cava perforation, thrombotic events, inability to retrieve. The reported allegations have been investigated based on the information provided to date. Filter fracture has been reported and may be either symptomatic or asymptomatic. Fracture of a filter leg may be due to repetitive motion on a filter leg in an unusual, stressed position, such as a filter leg penetrating/perforating the ivc; or a filter leg being caught in a side branch (e. G. , a renal vein). Other potential causes of filter fracture may include excessive force or manipulations near an implanted filter (e. G. , a surgical or endovascular procedure in the vicinity of a filter). Retrieval of a fractured filter or filter fragments (including embolized fragments) using endovascular techniques has been reported. Potential adverse events that may occur include, but are not limited to, the following: filter fracture, filter or filter fragment embolization, trauma to adjacent structures. Filter interacts with ivc wall, e. G. Penetration/perforation/embedment. This may be either symptomatic or asymptomatic. Potential causes may include improper deployment; and (or) excessive force or manipulations near an in-situ filter (e. G. , a surgical or endovascular procedure in the vicinity of a filter). Potential adverse events that may occur include, but are not limited to, the following: trauma to adjacent structures, vascular trauma, vena cava perforation, vena cava penetration. Ivc occlusion/ thrombosis, new dvt, ivc stenosis as a reported complication, is a known risk in relation to filter implant and is well documented in the clinical literature and in clinical practice guidelines. This is supported by the clinical evidence report established to assess available clinical data to identify and evaluate the clinical safety and performance of the cook vena cava filters. Potential adverse events that may occur include, but are not limited to, the following: vena cava occlusion or thrombosis, vena cava stenosis, deep vein thrombosis. Physician practice guidelines and published guidance from regulatory agencies recommend that patients with indwelling filters undergo routine follow-up. The risks/benefits of filter retrieval should be considered for each patient during follow-up. Once protection from pe is no longer necessary, filter retrieval should be considered. Filter retrieval should be attempted when feasible and clinically indicated. Filter retrieval is a patient-specific, clinically complex decision; the decision to remove a filter should be based on each patient¿s individual risk/benefit profile (e. G. , a patient¿s continued need for protection from pe compared to their experience with and (or) ongoing risk of experiencing filter-related complications). For all retrievable ivc filters, retrieval becomes more challenging with time, and this is commonly due to encapsulation of the filter legs or hook (in a tilted filter) by tissue ingrowth. The filter is designed to be retrieved with the günther tulip vena cava filter retrieval set. It may also be retrieved with the cloversnare® vascular retriever. Cook has not performed testing to evaluate the safety or effectiveness of filter retrieval using other retrieval systems or techniques. The published clinical literature includes descriptions of alternative techniques for filter retrieval; use of these techniques varies according to physician experience, patient anatomy, and filter position. The safety or effectiveness of these alternative retrieval techniques has not been established. Specific for ¿embedded¿ a filter that is embedded in the wall of the ivc may be difficult to retrieve. For all retrievable ivc filters, retrieval becomes more challenging with time, and this is commonly due to encapsulation of the filter legs or hook (in a tilted filter) by tissue ingrowth. Catalog number and lot number are unknown, however, the alleged celect is manufactured and inspected according to specifications. No evidence to suggest that this device was not manufactured according to specifications and nothing indicates that the filter did not perform as intended, e. G. Intended for the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (pe) via placement in the vena cava. No evidence to suggest that this device was not manufactured according to specifications and nothing indicates that the filter did not perform as intended, e. G. Intended for the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (pe) via placement in the vena cava. Cook will reopen its investigation if further information is received warranting supplementation in accordance with 21 c. F. R. 803. 56.
 
Event Description
The following information is alleged: the patient received a celect tulip inferior vena cava (ivc) filter on (b)(6) 2008. After the implantation the filter perforated through the patient's ivc, with one strut perforating the patient's duodenum. One strut of patient's filter has fractured and is perforating the patient's right retroperitoneum, just inferior to the kidney. The patient further alleges thrombotic events and an unsuccessful filter retrieval attempt. Hospital and medical records have been requested, but not yet provided.
