Manufacturer Narrative

Concomitant medical products: inflation device (unknown type). Investigation evaluation: a product evaluation was not performed in response to this report because the product said to be involved was not provided to cook for evaluation. The report could not be confirmed. The device history record for the lot number said to be involved was reviewed. A discrepancy or anomaly was not observed with the product that was released for distribution. Investigation conclusions: we could not conduct a complete investigation because the product said to be involved was not returned for evaluation. A definitive cause for the reported observation could not be determined. According to the report, negative pressure was not applied to the balloon prior to advancement through the endoscope. The instructions for use caution the user that negative pressure is mandatory to maintain balloon deflation. The application of negative pressure will aspirate all residual air from the balloon and ease endoscopic advancement. Negative pressure will also aid in balloon preservation and optimize balloon performance. A possible contributing factor to balloon material failure is inadequate lubrication of the balloon with a water soluble lubricant. The instructions for use direct the user to apply a water soluble lubricant to the balloon to allow easier passage through the accessory channel. This activity will aid in endoscopic advancement and balloon preservation. A balloon material failure can occur if the balloon is inflated prior to advancement through the endoscope or if the balloon is inflated while partially or fully inside the accessory channel of the endoscope. The instructions for use contain the following precaution: ¿do not pre-inflate the balloon. ¿ the instructions for use also advise to maintain balloon deflation with negative pressure and to completely visualize the balloon endoscopically. The instructions for use contain the following information: "recommended 100% balloon inflation pressure can be found on catheter tag of balloon dilator. " over inflation can cause damage to the balloon dilator. Another possible contributing factor is using a compromised inflation device to inflate the balloon. If the pressure reading of the inflation device is inaccurate, this could contribute to over inflation, possibly resulting in damage to the balloon material. Prior to distribution, all quantum ttc colonic balloon dilator are subjected to a visual inspection and functional testing to ensure device integrity. A review of the device history record confirmed that the lot said to be involved met all manufacturing requirements prior to shipment. Corrective action: a review of the complaint history was conducted. The likelihood of occurrence is considered rare. Corrective action is not warranted at this time based on the quality engineering risk assessment. Quality assurance will continue to monitor for complaint trends and reassess the risk assessment results as post market feedback continues to become available.
