Event Description
Reference mdr #1219856-2016-00056 for the first event and mdr #1219856-2016-00058 for the second event involving the same patient. It was reported that at 14:00 on (b)(6) 2016 the intra-aortic balloon (iab) catheter was inserted into the patient. Soon after placement of the catheter, drain failure occurred and the alarm went off; however, the drainage was not confirmed in the bottle. At 17:00 the alarm stopped; drainage was confirmed in the drain bottle. At 19:00 the intra-aortic balloon pump ((b)(4)) was replaced by a new pump ((b)(4)) and the iab catheter was used as is. At 07:40 on (b)(6) 2016 the iab catheter and pump were removed. At 17:00, the clinical engineer (ce) checked the removed iab catheter and found two ruptures in the catheter; however, it was unknown when the ruptures occurred. The rn stated that the pump did not alarm during the procedure. There was no reported patient death, injury or complications. There was no reported delay or interruption in therapy. Medical / surgical intervention was not required. The patient outcome is listed as good. Additional information received from the sales representative stated that the catheter was removed because therapy finished.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4) device evaluation: returned for evaluation was a 30cc 7. 5fr ultraflex iab. The short driveline tubing was connected to a 30cc inflation driveline tubing. The teflon sheath was approximately 39. 2cm from the iab distal tip and was connected to the iab hemostasis cuff. The iab hemostasis cuff was connected to the cathgard. The iab assembly had the pressure line connected to the iab luer. The one-way valve was tethered to the short driveline tubing. The bladder was fully unwrapped. Blood was observed on the interior of the bladder, short driveline tubing and 30cc inflation driveline tubing. Bends were noted at approximately 4. 9cm and 18. 7cm from the iab distal tip. The bladder thickness was measured at various locations and was within specification. The one-way valve was tested and passed. A vacuum was pulled on the one-way valve and it held for at least 1 minute and then 30 seconds five separate times. The iab was submerged in water and leak tested. A leak/puncture was noted approximately 2. 8cm from the iab distal tip. Under microscopic investigation, a puncture to the bladder membrane was confirmed and the appearance was consistent with contact with a sharp. See other remarks section for continuation. Other remarks: a lab-inventory 0. 025 inch spring wire guide (swg) was back loaded through the iab distal tip. Resistance was noted at approximately 6. 0cm, 18. 9cm and 68. 5cm from the iab distal tip. The swg was able to advance through the central lumen; no blood or debris was noted. The swg was front loaded through the iab luer. Resistance was noted at approximately 9. 4cm and 58. 5cm from the iab luer. The swg was able to advance through the central lumen; no blood or debris was noted. The catheter was aspirated and flushed using a 60cc lab-inventory syringe. No abnormalities or debris were noted. A field corrective action was issued for this lot number on february 9, 2016. The reported event occurred after the field corrective action went live. The returned sample was not found with this issue. A device history record review was conducted for the lot number/serial number with one relevant finding. The component was manufactured prior to the field correction action recall for sheath hub separation (capa (b)(4)). The product was not found with this issue. Conclusion: the reported complaint of blood in helium pathway is confirmed. The bladder membrane had a puncture consistent with contact from a sharp which allowed blood to enter the iab. The root cause of the puncture is undetermined.
