Manufacturer Narrative
The exact implant date is unknown. The catalog number is unknown, if received it will be provided. Complaint conclusion: it was reported that a patient underwent placement of a trapease vena cava filter. The information provided indicated that the filter subsequently malfunctioned and caused aortic perforation. The indication for the filter placement, procedural details and medical history have not been provided and there is no additional information available for review. 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 trapease ivc filter is indicated for use in the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (pe) via percutaneous placement in the vena cava 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. Vessel perforation is a known adverse event associated with implanting vena cava filters and is listed as such in the instructions for use (ifu). The ifu also notes vessel damage such as intimal tears and perforation as procedural and long-term complications related to ivc filters. Without post implant imaging available for review, the reported perforation could not be confirmed or further clarified. There is nothing to suggest that the reported event is related to the design and/or manufacturing process of the device; therefore, no corrective action will be taken. Should additional information become available, the file will be updated accordingly.
