Manufacturer Narrative

Concomitant product: cook quantum inflation device (qid-1). 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. An evaluation of the photo provided by the user was performed. Based on the photo provided, it is hard to determine the exact location of the leakage. Without return of the complaint device, further investigation could not be performed. 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. A possible contributing factor to balloon material damage is applying inadequate lubrication to the balloon prior to advancement through the endoscope. The instructions for use direct the user to: "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. Another possible contributing factor to balloon material damage is applying inadequate negative pressure to the balloon dilator prior to advancement through the endoscope. The instructions for use direct the user: "to facilitate passage through the endoscope, apply negative pressure to the device. " the application of negative pressure will aspirate all residual air from the balloon and ease endoscopic advancement. Negative pressure will also aid in balloon preservation and optimize balloon performance. The instructions for use also advise the user: ¿maintain balloon deflation with negative pressure and introduce into endoscope accessory channel, advancing in short increments until balloon is completely visualized endoscopically. ¿ use of an endoscope in a sound state of repair is also essential for a successful dilation procedure. Damage 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. ¿ the instructions for use contain the following warning: ¿during dilation, do not inflate balloon beyond the maximum indicated inflation pressure, as this could result in overextension or bursting of 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 damage to the balloon material. Prior to distribution, all hercules 3 stage wire guided balloon esophageal-pyloric-colonic are subjected to a visual examination 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.

 
Event Description

During the esophageal dilation procedure, the physician used a cook hercules 3 stage wireguided balloon esophageal-pyloric-colonic. The balloon used had a leak in the proximal part [leak from balloon], thus preventing the dilation.
