There was no reported patient injury.

Manufacturer Narrative

Manufacturing review: the device history records have been reviewed with special attention to the raw materials, subassemblies, manufacturing process and quality control testing. This lot met all release criteria. There was nothing found to indicate there was a manufacturing related cause for this event. This is the only event reported to date for this lot number and failure mode. Visual inspection: the filter is partially retraced within a recovery cone removal system. This is against the instructions for use (ifu), as the denali filter should only be retrieved using a dual sheath snare device. The shaft handle of the recovery cone was bent and the proximal portion of the sheath (near the strain relief) appeared to be slightly bunched or crinkled. There was no alleged deficiency with the recovery cone and the damage may have occurred after the procedure or during packaging for return. The distal tip of the recovery cone sheath was flared. Functional/performance evaluation: the denali filter was removed from the recovery cone. All 6 arms and 6 legs were present and intact. Two legs and one arm were crossed. No crossed limbs were reported by the user. It is possible the limbs became crossed during retraction into the sheath. The polyurethane cone was separated from one of the prongs. Dimensional evaluation: the limbs were uncrossed. Heat was applied and the filter took the appropriate shape. All measurements met the required specifications. Medical records/image/photo review: no medical records or medical images have been made available to the manufacturer. Conclusion: the denali filter was returned partially retracted within a recovery cone removal system. As neither images or cine runs were provided, the investigation is inconclusive for partial deployment. Based upon the available information, the definitive root cause for this event is unknown. It is unknown if procedural factors contributed to this event. It should be noted that per the instructions for use (ifu), the denali filter should be retrieved using an intravascular snare only. The filter was removed using a recovery cone which is only intended for use with the g2 x filter, g2 express filter, g2 filter and recovery filter. Labeling review: the denali femoral system instructions for use (ifu) provides general instructions for use of the device, as well as warnings, precautions, and potential complications associated with the device. The information provided by bard represents all of the known information at this time. Despite good faith efforts to obtain additional information, the complainant / reporter was unable or unwilling to provide any further patient, product, or procedural details to bard.
