Manufacturer Narrative
Manufacturer reference # (b)(4). Exemption number e2016032. William cook europe aps (manufacturer) is submitting this report on behalf of cook medical incorporated (cmi) (importer). Name and address for importer site: (b)(4). 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 ¿ivc filter - pain in groin, subdural hematoma, migration, pe, ivc occlusion". Cook will reopen its investigation if further information is received warranting supplementation in accordance with 21 c. F. R. 803. 56. Manipulation in the area of the filter implant may cause migration or contribute to changes in the filter configuration and placement. Pe is a known risk in relation to filter implant reported in the published scientific literature. Also, it is reported that the pulmonary embolism in some cases may originate from upper extremities instead of lower extremity veins. With all filters, there is some risk of further pulmonary embolism. Ivc thrombotic occlusion as an outcome for cook ivc filters is addressed in the published scientific literature. Ivc thrombotic occlusion is defined as the presence of an occluding thrombus in the ivc after filter insertion and documented by ultrasound (us), ct, mr imaging or venography; this may be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Unknown if the reported pain in groin and subdural hematoma are directly related to the filter and unable to identify a corresponding failure mode at this point in time. Filter type and lot# are unknown. 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. Manufacturer reference # (b)(4). Exemption number e2016032.
