Event Description
It was reported that during preparation for an angioplasty procedure the health care provider noticed that the pta balloon sterile packaging had allegedly been opened. There was no reported patient contact.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
Manufacturing review: the device history records were reviewed with special attention to the raw materials, subassemblies, manufacturing process and quality control testing. This lot met all release criteria. There was nothing found to indicate there was a manufacturing related cause for this event. Visual/microscopic inspection: the sample was returned clean outside of the packaging hoop inside the inner packaging pouch. The inner packaging pouch was returned opened. No other anomalies were noted to the inner packaging pouch. The outer packaging was returned opened. The catheter was removed from the inner packaging pouch and the hub on the pta balloon indicates 8mm x 40mm. No anomalies were noted to the packaging hoop or the catheter upon removal from the inner packaging pouch. It was observed that the balloon protector and stylet were still in place on the balloon. A kink in the catheter was present 35. 5cm from the distal tip. It is unknown when the kink occurred, as it was not reported by the user. The balloon protector and stylet were removed from the catheter and no anomalies were noted to the balloon. Medical records review: medical records were not provided; therefore, a review could not be performed. Image/photo review: images/photos were not provided; therefore, a review could not be performed. Conclusion: the sample was returned with opened inner and outer packaging. The investigation is inconclusive for a packaging issue, as the inner packaging pouch was returned open and no packaging anomalies were found on the returned sample or packaging. It is unlikely that the root cause is manufacturing related as inner packaging is verified as fully sealed. It is possible that shipping/handling or user related issues in opening the product packaging contributed to the event. However, the definitive root cause could not be determined based upon the available information. Labeling review: the current ifu (instructions for use) states: warnings: do not exceed the rbp recommended for this device. Balloon rupture may occur if the rbp rating is exceeded. To prevent over pressurization, use of a pressure monitoring device is recommended. Precautions: carefully inspect the catheter prior to use to verify that catheter has not been damaged during shipment and that its size, shape, and condition are suitable for the procedure for which it is to be used. Do not use if product damage is evident. Use of the ultraverse 035 pta dilatation catheter: position the balloon relative to the lesion to be dilated, ensure the guidewire is in place, and inflate the balloon to the appropriate pressure. 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.
