Concomitant products: boston scientific dreamwire 0. 35in 260cm wire guide, boston scientific alliance inflation system. Investigation evaluation: a product evaluation was not performed in response to this report because the product said to be involved was not provided to cook for evaluation. The report could not be confirmed. The device history record for the lot number said to be involved was reviewed. A discrepancy or anomaly was not observed with the product that was released for distribution. Investigation conclusion: we could not conduct a complete investigation because the product said to be involved was not returned for evaluation. A definitive cause for the reported observation could not be determined. The information provided indicated that the balloon was used during sphincteroplasty of the papilla. The intended use of the device is as follows: "this device is used to dilate strictures of the gastrointestinal tract, including strictures of the esophagus, pylorus, duodenum and colon. " the instructions for use state: ¿do not use this device for any other purpose other than stated intended use. " the additional information provided indicated the balloon did not receive negative pressure prior to advancement through the endoscope. This is the most likely cause for the reported observation. The instructions for use state: "to facilitate passage through endoscope, apply negative pressure to the device. " the application of negative pressure will aspirate all residual air from the balloon and ease endoscopic advancement. Application of negative pressure will also aid in balloon preservation and optimize balloon performance. The instructions for use also direct the user: "maintain balloon deflation with negative pressure and introduce into endoscope accessory channel, advancing in short increments until balloon is completely visualized endoscopically. " the additional information provided indicated that the balloon did not receive lubrication prior to advancement through the endoscope. Another possible contributing factor to balloon material damage is failure to lubricate the balloon with a lubricating agent. This is also a likely cause for the reported observation. The instructions for use direct the user: "apply a lubricating agent to the balloon to facilitate passage through the endoscope accessory channel. " this activity will aid in endoscopic advancement and balloon preservation. Balloon leakage can occur if the balloon is inflated prior to advancement through the endoscope or if the balloon is inflated while partially or fully inside the accessory channel of the endoscope. The instructions for use contain the following precaution: ¿do not pre-inflate the balloon. ¿ another possible contributing factor is using a compromised inflation device to inflate the balloon. If the pressure reading of the inflation device is inaccurate, this could contribute to over inflation, possibly resulting in a failure of the balloon material. Prior to distribution, all hercules 3 stage wireguided balloon esophageal-pyloric-colonic are subjected to a visual inspection and functional testing to ensure device integrity. A review of the device history record confirmed that the lot said to be involved met all manufacturing requirements prior to shipment. Corrective action: a review of the complaint history was conducted. The likelihood of occurrence is considered rare. Corrective action is not warranted at this time based on the quality engineering risk assessment. Quality assurance will continue to monitor for complaint trends and reassess the risk assessment results as post market feedback continues to become available. Additional comments regarding this report: based on the information provided that the device was used against the instructions for use, and that lubrication and negative pressure were not applied, a cook representative has been directed to contact the medical facility involved in an effort to promote further education and understanding related to appropriate usage of this product.

 
Event Description

During a sphincteroplasty procedure [against intended use], the physician used a cook hercules 3 stage wireguided balloon esophageal-pyloric-colonic. When attempting to increase the pressure to inflate the balloon, the contrast refluxed for [through] the wire guide port and the pressure was not able to be maintained in the balloon.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

Concomitant medical products. Boston scientific dreamwire 0. 35 in 260 cm wire guide. Boston scientific alliance inflation system. Investigation evaluation: our laboratory evaluation of the product said to be involved confirmed the report. The balloon was received with contrast liquid in it. During a functional test, a cook dilation syringe ds-60 cc-s was filled with water and attached to the balloon inflation port. The syringe was placed into an inflation handle, and negative pressure was applied to the balloon. After applying negative pressure, inflation of the balloon was attempted. The balloon would not hold pressure and a leakage was observed at the balloon joint at the distal end of the balloon. No portion of the balloon appeared to be missing. The wire guide associated with this device was included in the return of the device. There were no kinks observed throughout the length of the catheter. A discrepancy or anomaly that could have contributed to the reported event was not observed during our laboratory analysis of the returned product. The device history record for the lot number said to be involved was reviewed. A discrepancy or anomaly was not observed with the product that was released for distribution. Investigation conclusion: a definitive cause for this observation could not be determined because the actual use conditions could not be duplicated in the laboratory setting. In addition, due to a variety of clinical conditions such as patient anatomy, endoscope position or progression of disease state, we could not reproduce the actual conditions of product usage during our laboratory analysis. This limits our ability to conclusively determine a cause. The information provided indicated that the balloon was used during sphincteroplasty of the papilla. The intended use of the device is as follows: "this device is used to dilate strictures of the gastrointestinal tract, including strictures of the esophagus, pylorus, duodenum and colon. " the instructions for use state: ¿do not use this device for any other purpose other than stated intended use.
