Event Description
According to the reporter, during an umbilical hernia repair the mesh was difficult to adhere. The hernia defect measured around 3 cm. The mesh folded fascial side against fascial side (textile side), the violet expanders were broken, a small infra-umbilical incision was made to place mesh in the intra-peritoneal position (in direct contact with bowel), and the mesh was not cut prior to implantation. Sutures were used to fixate the mesh. Before implantation: the mesh looked normal, the reporter could not provide any information on the pla ring. No trocar was used as this was open surgery. After numerous attempts to position the mesh flat against the abdominal wall/peritoneum it eventually had to be removed. It was reported that the integrity of the pla-ring was compromised due to, what seemed to be weakened areas on it. The mesh also now had damage to the anti-adhesion barrier due to the attempt to flatten it out. A second unit pco6vp (with a different lot number) was used to complete the procedure. There was a 3 minute delay in theatre time. Patient status, stable, recovered.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). A review of the device history record has been performed. This review confirmed that this lot of products was released according to qa specifications. Especially, the manufacturing and qc records related to the molding of the ring and collagen film casting were found within qa specifications. Conclusion of the visual examination: the returned sample does not match with the incident description, as it was not clinically used and so has not been inserted inside the patient body. The returned sample does not seem to be the involved sample in this complaint (i. E. Demo sample suspected). Handling rough is highly suspected to explain the violet expanders damages. The report has been added to our product complaints database which is monitored for similar occurrences. Based on the available information, our investigation and a complaint history review, the manufacture of the device is not suspected. There is no indication that there is a defective lot or that this event represents an emerging adverse quality trend. No immediate action required. The returned sample does not seem to be the involved sample of this complaint (i. E. Demo sample suspected). The root cause could not be reliably determined.
