Manufacturer Narrative
Manufacturing review: as the lot number for the device was not provided, a manufacturing review could not be performed. Visual/microscopic inspection: as the device was not returned, an inspection could not be performed. Functional/performance evaluation: as the device was not returned, an evaluation could not be performed. Medical records review: as medical records were not provided, a review could not be performed. Image/photo review: as medical images were not provided, a review could not be performed. Conclusion: the device was not returned. Images and medical records were not provided. The investigation is inconclusive for filter tilt and removal difficulties. Based upon the available information, the definitive root cause for this event is unknown. Labeling review: snf: the current ifu (instructions for use) states: note: the dome of the filter will normally descend 1-2cm during shape recovery so that its tip will be lower than its actual position in the introducer before unsheathing. If the vena cava is too small to accommodate the fully centered filter dome, the dome may tilt toward the vena cava wall, or assume a spindle or cone configuration. These variations are functionally effective in undersized lumens. Rnf: the current ifu (instructions for use) states: warnings/potential complications: possible complications include but are not limited to the following: movement or migration of the filter is a known complication. This may be caused by placement in the ivc's with diameters exceeding the appropriate labeled dimensions specified in the ifu. G2/g2 express/g2x/eclipse/meridian/denali: the current ifu (instructions for use) states: warnings/potential complications: movement, migration or tilt of the filter are known complications of vena cava filters; filter tilt; filter malposition. Note: it is possible that complications such as those described in the "warnings", "precautions", or "potential complications" sections of this instructions for use may affect the recoverability of the device and result in the clinician's decision to have the device remain permanently implanted. 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.
