Event Type  Injury  
Manufacturer Narrative
As reported by the legal brief, a patient underwent placement of a trapease vena cava filter. The filter subsequently malfunctioned and caused injury and damage to the patient, including, but not limited to, specific evidence that the filter is tilted, has two fractured struts and there is occlusive thrombus within the inferior vena cava (ivc). As a direct and proximate result of these malfunctions, the patient has suffered life threatening injuries and damages and required extensive medical care and treatment. As a further proximate result, the patient has suffered and will continue to suffer significant medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages. The device was not returned for analysis. No lot number was provided therefore a product history record (phr) review could not be generated. The reported ¿filter-tilt, filter-fractured in patient, inferior venacaval thrombosis and inferior vena caval occlusion¿ could not be confirmed as the device was not returned for analysis. The exact cause of the reported events could not be conclusively determined. Procedural/handling factors, or vessel characteristics, although unknown, may have contributed to the reported event. According to the ifu, which is not intended as a mitigation of risk, ¿filter fracture is a potential complication of vena cava filters. Anatomic locations that create concentrated stress points from filter deformation (for example, deployment at apex of scoliosis, overlapping of either of the renal ostia, or placement adjacent to a vertebral osteophyte) may contribute to fracture of a particular filter strut. However, reports of adverse clinical sequelae from filter fractures are rare. Possible long-term complications associated with filter implantation include, but are not limited to, the following: filter obstruction, filter perforation of the vena cava wall, filter migration, filter fracture, recurrent pulmonary embolism. ¿ the timing and mechanism of the tilt has not been reported at this time. Without images available for review the reported tilt could not be confirmed or further clarified. Vena cava thrombosis/occlusion does not represent a device malfunction. Since no lot number was provided a phr could not be generated. The limited information available does not suggest a design or manufacturing related cause for the reported event; therefore, no corrective/preventive action will be taken at this time. Should additional information become available, the file will be updated accordingly.
