Manufacturer Narrative
Although the author correspondence indicated the complications in question were not due a system malfunction and are expected complications after partial nephrectomy regardless of surgical modality, the root cause of the reported post-operative complications cannot be determined or is unknown. There is no allegation of a da vinci product malfunction, so no product is expected for return and failure analysis. If additional information is received, a follow-up mdr will be submitted. System and instrument log reviews could not be performed due to a lack of system, procedure, and instrument detail. A site history complaint review could not be confirmed due to a lack of product information and procedure dates. No image or procedure videos were provided for review related to a specific event. However, procedure images were provided within the article (in figures 1, 2, and 3) show what appears to be robotic ports and unspecified third party trocars for multiport procedures. An isi clinical development engineer (cde) conducted a clinical image review and the following was noted: the si system is indicated for urological procedures like partial nephrectomy. Some of the robotic ports appear to be placed more than 8-10cm from each other, although this cannot be confirmed from these images alone. Internal instrument collisions may be more frequent when robotic ports are placed further than 8-10cm from each other. Instrument collisions cannot be confirmed without a procedure video. This port placement may not strictly adhere to our port placement recommendations, but misuse or mishandling cannot be confirmed. No additional insights can be provided from the images alone. This complaint is being reported due to the following conclusion: within the journal article titled, ¿use of bariatric ports in 4-arm robotic partial nephrectomy: a comparative study with the standard 3-arm technique," it is noted that two patients required post-operative selective arterial embolization for postoperative bleeding/ hematoma. Even though the author correspondence indicated the post-operative complications were not due a system malfunction, the causes of the complications are unknown. There is no allegation that a malfunction of a da vinci system, instrument, or accessory occurred. Follow-up was attempted, but the patient information b was either unknown, unavailable, not provided, or not applicable. The expiration date is not applicable. The product is not implantable. If the initial reporter submitted a report to the fda. Insufficient product information was provided in order to obtain the date of manufacture.
