Event Description

The subject adverse event was reported via a lawsuit.

The pt, subsequently, went into septic shock and was placed on life support. However, the pt expired approx five days later.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

The product has not been returned for analysis. However, the product model and lot numbers were made available. Review of the device history records indicated this lot number is part of a recall for bacterial contamination. Nine retains of the lot (13kmlb004) were tested for microbiological contamination (bioburden). The bioburden tests on the retain samples of the lot yielded one out of spec sample of the nine retains. Although medical records pertaining to this event including the death certificate and, if completed, autopsy report were requested, no further info regarding the reported event is available and a clinical investigation could not be performed. Without the requested add'l info and clinical investigation, no conclusion can be drawn.
