Event Description

As reported, the physician was not able to remove the air completely from a 15x40mm maxi ld balloon during negative pressure which was further reported as "air kept removing from the product. " it was exchanged to a 20x40mm maxi ld device; however the same issue occurred. It was exchanged for another one and the procedure was completed successfully. There was no reported patient injury. The patient's information was unknown. The target lesion was the abdominal aortic aneurysm. The lesion was not calcified and moderately tortuous. The rate of stenosis was 0%. For the procedure, a 15x40mm maxi ld pta catheter was opened. There was no difficulty removing the product from the hoop or removing the balloon cover/stylet. There were no kinks or damages noted to the device prior to use; however it was unknown if there was any damages noted to the inflation port. When the physician tried to remove air inside a 15x40mm maxi ld balloon catheter by a syringe during preparation, air could not be removed completely during negative pressure which was further reported as "air kept removing from the product. " therefore, the physician stopped using the maxi ld and exchanged for another maxi ld catheter but the same issue occurred. The brand of syringe used and whether it was used successfully with other devices are unknown. It is unknown if there was any difficulty experienced as the syringe was connected to the device or if the same syringe was used to complete the procedure. It is unknown if the catheters were in an acute bend. Therefore the maxi ld was changed to another unknown brand. The procedure finished successfully. There was no reported patient injury. The products were not clinically used. And these will be returned for analysis.
