Manufacturer Narrative
The balloon assembly was returned for evaluation and is confirmed for a small portion of the balloon to be detached from the rest of the balloon. Inspection of both pieces confirms that the entire balloon was removed from the patient. Visually evaluation of the echo ps balloon finds that the balloon material likely experienced a shear force during removal. It appears the user inadvertently sheared off a section of the balloon material while removing the device through the trocar, resulting in the damage that presented. As reported the balloon was pulled through the trocar during removal. The instructions for use, which are supplied with the device, prescribe that the balloon be removed simultaneously with the trocar, not pulled through the trocar, stating, "begin removal of the echo ps¿ positioning system by grasping one of the two removal points marked by the dark arrows adjacent to the bard® logo. Begin pulling the positioning system off of the mesh in one smooth motion. Continue removing echo ps¿ positioning system and trocar simultaneously. " based on the event as reported and the sample evaluation the surgeon did not follow the prescribed technique for the removal of the echo ps ¿ positioning system, which may have put additional stresses on the balloon resulting in the observed damage. A review of the manufacturing records was performed and found that the lot was manufactured to specification. 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.
