Manufacturer Narrative
As reported by a surgeon who was performing a medical record review, post-implant of the onflex mesh the patient experienced bleeding/hematoma. As treatment the implanting surgeon explanted the mesh and soaked it in saline and then re-implanted the mesh into the patient. It was reported that following the reimplantation the patient developed a postoperative infection and the contacting surgeon reports that the subsequent infection does not appear to have been device related. The medical records were not provided and the information is limited to what the reporting surgeon was willing to provide. Postoperative hematoma is a known inherent risk of surgery and is listed in the adverse reaction section of the instructions-for-use (ifu) as a possible complication. Additionally, the warnings section of the ifu states "this device is for single use only. Do not resterilize or reuse any portion of the onflex mesh. " though the reporting surgeon reported the patient¿s post-operative infection did not appear to be device related, and infection is a known risk of surgery, in regards to infection, the ifu states "if an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. Consideration should be given regarding the need to remove the mesh. Unresolved infection may require removal of the mesh. " no lot number has been provided; therefore, a review of the manufacturing records is not possible. Note, the date of event is provided as a best estimate based on the date of awareness. Should additional information be provided, a supplemental mdr will be submitted. Remains implanted.
