Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). During processing of this complaint, attempts were made to obtain complete event, patient and device information. The device was received. Investigation is not yet complete. A follow up report will be submitted with all relevant information.
 
Event Description
It was reported that the procedure was to treat a 70 to 80% stenosis in the left anterior descending (lad) coronary artery. A 3. 25 x 12 mm nc trek rx balloon dilatation catheter (bdc) was selected for the procedure. During preparation of the bdc, resistance was felt while removing the protective sheath from the balloon, force was applied and the sheath finally came off of the balloon. No other issues were noted during preparation. The bdc was backloaded onto an unspecified guide wire and advanced; however, the bdc would only advance about 10 cm and would not go any further. The bdc was removed from the guide wire and was not used in the procedure. Another nc trek rx bdc was used to successfully complete the procedure. There was no reported clinically significant delay in the procedure. There was no reported adverse patient sequela. No additional information was provided.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). Evaluation summary: the device returned for analysis. The complaint investigation determined the reported difficulty was related to manufacturing issues associated with the protective sheath. On march 14, 2017, abbott vascular decided to initiate a voluntary field action for some sizes and lots of the nc trek family of dilatation catheters for difficulty to remove sheath which may lead to inflation or deflation issues. Abbott vascular performed a comprehensive investigation which included device analysis, manufacturing evaluation and trend analysis. The root cause identification was complicated by the fact that users were describing multiple symptoms when reporting the complaints. To date, the frequency of worldwide reported events for difficulties removing the protective balloon sheath, inflation and deflation has reached an actionable limit, thus abbott vascular communicated the voluntary field action to the fda on march 17, 2017 [medwatch # 2024168-2017-02310]. Corrective action has been implemented per site operating procedures. The product will continue to be trended. The abbott internal recall number is 2024168-3/14/2017-002-r.
