Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). Filter type is unknown, due to the time of placement it is assumed to be a celect filter. It has not been possible to further investigate or evaluate this alleged event based on the limited information provided to date via the operative note stating "migration; fracture; vena cava perforation; bleeding". Cook will reopen its investigation if further information is received warranting supplementation in accordance with 21 c. F. R. 803. 56 unknown if the reported bleeding is directly related to the filter and unable to identify a corresponding failure mode at this point in time. Manipulation in the area of the filter implant may cause migration or contribute to changes in the filter configuration and placement. Vena cava wall perforation is a known potential complication of vena cava filters. Both symptomatic and asymptomatic events have been reported. Among other causes, vena cava wall perforation may inadvertently be initiated by improper deployment, excessive force or manipulations near an implanted filter (e. G. , a surgical procedure in the vicinity of a filter) and (or) procedures that involve other devices being passed through an in situ filter. There is a current debate in the published scientific literature on a differentiation between ivc wall perforation with and without clinical sequelae. E. G. Filter legs may be outside the contrast lumen on imaging without actually perforating the ivc wall (known as tenting) and with no clinical sequelae. In contrast, perforation of adjacent organs is reported with clinical sequelae. Filter fracture is a known potential complication of vena cava filters. Both symptomatic and asymptomatic events have been reported. Fracture of a filter leg can be due to repetitive motion on a filter leg in an unusual stressed position. Among other causes, filter fracture may be associated with a filter leg perforating the ivc, a filter leg being caught in a side branch (e. G. Renal vein), excessive force or manipulations near an implanted filter (e. G. A surgical procedure in the vicinity of a filter) and / or procedures that involve other devices being passed through an in situ filter. It has been reported that retrieval of a fractured filter or filter fragments using endovascular techniques is possible. Fracture of the wire is a known risk in relation to an implanted filter and reported in the published scientific literature. It is known from the published scientific literature that filter fragment embolized into the heart or lung may be safely retrieved. No evidence to suggest that this device was not manufactured according to specifications and nothing indicates that the filter did not perform as intended, e. G. Intended for the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (pe) via placement in the vena cava.
