Manufacturer Narrative

Concomitant medical products: cook qid-1 dilator, cook 35 wire guide (unknown rpn). Investigation evaluation: our laboratory evaluation of the product said to be involved confirmed the report. During a visual inspection of the returned device, it was observed that the balloon was detached at the balloon joint on the distal end of the device. An examination of the balloon material did not display any other splits other than the distal end balloon joint being disconnected. It was confirmed that glue was present at the balloon joint. At the proximal balloon joint the balloon joint appeared to be kinked and bent. Due to the condition of the device, a functional test could not be performed on the device. No balloon material was missing. There were three (3) kinks in the catheter that were at 131. 3 cm to 140. 0 cm from the distal end of the proximal hub. 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: a definitive cause for this observation could not be determined because the actual use conditions could not be duplicated in the laboratory setting. Due to a variety of clinical conditions such as patient anatomy, endoscope position or progression of disease state, we could not reproduce the actual conditions of product usage during our laboratory analysis. This limits our ability to conclusively determine a cause. A possible contributing factor to balloon material damage is inadequate lubrication of the balloon with a lubricating agent. The instructions for use direct the user to "apply a lubricating agent to the balloon to facilitate passage through the endoscope accessory channel. " this activity will aid in endoscopic advancement and balloon preservation. Another possible contributing factor to balloon material damage is failure to apply negative pressure to the balloon dilator prior to advancement through the endoscope. The instructions for use direct the user: "to facilitate passage through the endoscope, apply negative pressure to the catheter. " 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. Damage to the balloon material 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 contain the following warning: ¿during dilation, do not inflate balloon beyond the maximum indicated inflation pressure. ¿ 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 hercules 3 stage wireguided balloon esophageal-pyloric-colonic are subjected to a visual examination 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.

 
Event Description

During an esophageal dilation, the physician used a cook hercules 3 stage wireguided balloon esophageal-pyloric-colonic. During the esophagus dilation, the physician found the balloon leaking while injecting the water. Replaced with a new device to finish the procedure.
