Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). During processing of this complaint, attempts were made to obtain complete event, patient and device information. The customer reported the device was discarded. 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 mildly tortuous and mildly calcified lesion in the proximal marginal artery. Resistance was noted while removing the protective sheath of a 3. 5x12mm nc trek balloon dilatation catheter (bdc). After removal of the protective sheath it was noticed that the balloon appeared stretched and bent. The bdc catheter was not used. Another 3. 5x12mm nc trek bdc was prepped; however, this time during preparation the sheath was soaked in saline prior to removal. The procedure was successfully completed with the second 3. 5x12mm nc trek bdc. There was no clinically significant delay in the procedure and no adverse patient effects. No additional information was provided.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). The device was not 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.
