Manufacturer Narrative

Device evaluated by mfr: received for analysis was the device without any packaging. The balloon protector was received placed over the balloon. There was no evidence of any device use. The balloon protector was withdrawn and an examination of the balloon found no issues. No kinks or damage was noted along the entire length of the shaft. An examination of the hub section of the device identified no anomalies which could potentially have contributed to the complaint incident. The manufacturing batch record review confirmed that the device met all material, assembly and performance specifications. The most probable root cause is considered handling damage as the event occurred without direct patient contact. (b)(4).
