Manufacturer Narrative

Device evaluated by manufacturer: the device was returned for analysis. Device analysis noted that 5mm of blade lifted on the proximal end of balloon. The blade was still attached to the balloon. The blade pad was undamaged. A visual and tactile examination found no kinks or damage along the shaft of the device. No other issues were identified during the product analysis. The manufacturing batch record review confirmed that the device met all material, assembly and performance specifications. The most probable root cause is operational context as device performance was limited due to anatomical/procedural factors. (b)(4).
