Manufacturer Narrative

Initial reporter occupation: non-healthcare professional. Investigation: the reported allegations have been further investigated based on the information provided to date. The following allegations have been investigated: fracture, organ/vena cava (vc) perforation, migration. 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. Filter or filter fragment migration and (or) embolization (e. G. , movement to the heart or lungs) has been reported. Filter or filter fragment movement has occurred in both the cranial and caudal direction and may be either symptomatic or asymptomatic. Potential causes may include filter placement in ivcs with diameters smaller or larger than those specified in these instructions for use; improper deployment; deployment into thrombus; dislodgement due to large thrombus burdens; 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: filter migration, trauma to adjacent structures. Catalog number and lot number are unknown. The alleged tulip 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. Cook will reopen its investigation if further information is received warranting supplementation in accordance with 21 c. F. R. 803. 56. This report includes information known at this time. A follow-up medwatch report will be submitted if additional relevant information becomes available.

 
Event Description

The following information is alleged: the patient received a gunther tulip inferior vena cava (ivc) filter on (b)(6) 2006. The patient's filter fractured and the struts have also perforated the inferior vena cava. The twelve o'clock strut of the filter is further perforating the patient's duodenum, the nine o'clock strut is abutting the duodenum, and the three o'clock strut is abutting the aorta. Additionally, the filter has migrated above the level of the renal veins. Hospital and medical records have been requested, but not yet provided.
