Manufacturer Narrative

No hospital/medical records or medical images have been made available to the manufacturer. As the lot number for the device was provided, a review of the device history records is currently being performed. The device has not been returned to the manufacturer for evaluation. The investigation of the reported event is currently underway. 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.

 
Event Description

It was reported that a pta balloon catheter allegedly could not be inflated, leaked contrast solution and appeared to have a small hole in the material. It was reported that the balloon was inflated once with an inflation device. Reportedly another pta balloon was used to complete the procedure. There was no patient injury reported.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

After further clinical review, this event was reassessed and determined to be not mdr reportable. Although, this event is not mdr reportable, an initial mdr has already been submitted; therefore, this supplemental report is being submitted to document the change in reportability. 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.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

Manufacturing review: a manufacturing review was conducted. The lot met all release criteria. Visual inspection: the sample was returned used. The catheter shaft did not exhibit any kinks or bends. Fiber disturbance was noted at the proximal neck weld site, located 8. 3cm from the distal tip. No other anomalies were noted to the returned device. Functional/performance evaluation: the patency of the guidewire lumen was tested using an in-house 0. 035¿ guidewire, and it passed without issue. With the guidewire in place, the inflation hub was connected to an inflation device. Upon inflation, a pinhole rupture was noted at the proximal weld site, located 8. 3cm from the distal tip. The location of the leak was examined closer under microscopic magnification and it appeared that the water was exiting a hole in the balloon at the proximal weld site. The balloon was deflated without issue. The balloon was stripped and removed from the catheter to examine whether any holes were present in the catheter at the location of the proximal weld site. No holes were present in the catheter. Medical records review: as medical records were not provided, a review could not be performed. Image/photo review: no medical images have been made available to the manufacturer. Conclusion: the complaint investigation is confirmed for a pinhole balloon rupture near the proximal neck weld site, resulting in the reported leak. The investigation is confirmed for material frayed, as the balloon fibers were frayed at the location of the pinhole balloon rupture. The definitive root cause could not be determined based upon the available information. It is unknown if patient and/or procedural issues contributed to the reported event. Labeling review: the current ifu (instructions for use) states: warnings: do not exceed the rbp recommended for this device. Balloon rupture may occur if the rbp rating is exceeded. To prevent over pressurization, use of a pressure monitoring device is recommended. Precautions: if resistance is felt during post procedure withdrawal of the catheter through the introducer sheath, determine if contrast is trapped in the balloon with fluoroscopy. If contrast is present, push the balloon out of the sheath and then completely evacuate the contrast before proceeding to withdraw the balloon. If resistance is still felt during post procedure withdrawal of the catheter, it is recommended to remove the balloon catheter and guidewire/introducer sheath as a single unit. Use of the atlas gold pta dilation catheter: position the balloon relative to the lesion to be dilated, ensure the guidewire is in place and inflate the balloon to the appropriate pressure. Apply negative pressure to fully evacuate fluid from the balloon. Confirm that the balloon is fully deflated under fluoroscopy. While maintaining negative pressure and the position of the guidewire, withdraw the deflated dilatation catheter over-the-wire through the introducer sheath. Use of a gentle clockwise motion may be used to help facilitate catheter removal through the introducer sheath. (b)(4). 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.
