Manufacturer Narrative

Initial reporter occupation: other, senior counsel, litigation. Please note that the exact event date is unknown and the event date is the complaint awareness date. (b)(4). As reported, the patient underwent placement of a optease retrievable vena cava filter. The indication for the filter placement was not reported. At some point after the filter implantation, the patient became aware that the posterior struts of the filter had collapsed. The product was not returned for analysis and the sterile lot number has not been provided; therefore, no device analysis nor device history record review could be performed. The optease retrievable vena cava filter is indicated for use in the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (pe) via percutaneous placement in the inferior vena cava (ivc) for patients in which anticoagulants are contraindicated, anticoagulant therapy for thromboembolic disease has failed, emergency treatment following massive pe where anticipated benefits of conventional therapy are reduced or for chronic, recurrent pe where anticoagulant therapy has failed, or is contraindicated. The purpose of a vena cava filter is to catch thrombus from the lower extremities as it travels along normal blood flow patterns up towards the heart. Altered shape of the device is a known potential event associated with use of the ivc filters, the ivc is a dynamic vessel subject to ongoing physical stressed and this and impact the shape of the filter struts over time. Given the limited information available for review, there is nothing to suggest that a malfunction in the design and manufacturing process of the device; therefore, no corrective action will be taken. Should additional information become available, the file will be updated accordingly. Please note that this is the initial/final report for this product.
