Manufacturer Narrative
The reported event was unconfirmed. The visual inspection noted that the basket was in the open position upon receipt. The basket was returned articulated and when the basket was closed, it would not completely retract into the sheath. The basket was placed back in the neutral position. Functional evaluation noted that the basket opened, moved (articulated) to either side and then centered with no problems observed. Handle and drive wires were functional and moved freely. The basket extended, retracted and articulated with no problems observed. Visual examination did not find any defects that would have contributed to the reported event. The device history record was reviewed and found nothing that could have caused or contributed to the reported event. The instructions for use state the following: "description: the bard® dimension® stone basket is a teardrop-shaped basket with the ability to capture stones by: simply opening and closing the basket and 2) articulating or moving the basket side to side. The device consists of 3 main parts: handle, shaft and basket. Indications for use: this device is intended for use in the endoscopic removal of renal and ureteral stones. Warnings: ¿ some objects may be too large to be removed endoscopically using a retrieval device. The use of fluoroscopy and/or x-ray to determine the size of the object is recommended; do not use the bard® dimension® stone basket if the object is too large to be removed endoscopically. ¿ after use this product may be a potential biohazard. Handle and dispose of in accordance with accepted medical practices and applicable laws and regulations. ¿ this is a single use device. Do not resterilize any portion of this device. Reuse and/or repackaging may create a risk of patient or user infection, compromise the structural integrity and/or essential material and design characteristics of the device, which may lead to device failure, and/or to injury, illness or death of the patient. Caution: objects that are too large to be recovered through the sheath or through the scope channel will require the scope and basket to be removed simultaneously from the urinary tract. If resistance is encountered during advancement or withdrawal of the device, stop and determine the source of resistance, as continued resistance may damage the device and could result in patient injury. Take action to alleviate the resistance. Where necessary, use of a lithotrite may be required to reduce the stone burden within the basket, provided that no direct contact is made with the stone basket. Precautions: do not allow the device to come in contact with any electrical equipment. Do not allow the device to be directly fired upon by any lithotripsy device. To do so may damage the device and could result in patient injury. Potential complications that may result from the use of a basket in an endoscopic urological procedure include, but are not limited to: ¿ perforation ¿ evulsion ¿ edema ¿ entrapment ¿ basket inversion ¿ hemorrhage ¿ inability to disengage from irretrievable object directions for use: only physicians trained in stone manipulation should perform this procedure. A variety of techniques may be employed; however the physician should use the technique most appropriate for the individual patient¿s situation. Inspect the device prior to use and during the procedure. Make sure the basket is closed by retracting the basket-tip into the sheath with the thumb slide (a). Insert the basket into the ureteroscope working-channel and advance the ureteroscope to the object to be removed. Under direct vision or fluoroscopic guidance, slowly advance the tip of the stone basket past the object. Conventional use: ¿ open the basket with the thumb slide (a). Pull the basket backward toward the object while slowly rotating the basket. Once the object has been captured, partially close the basket to secure the object for removal by pulling the thumb slide (a) back. ¿ simultaneously, withdraw the basket and the ureteroscope from the urinary system. Articulating use: ¿ use the control wheel (b) to articulate the basket by moving the wheel forward or backward. Articulate the basket as needed to capture the object. Once the object has been captured, partially close the basket to secure the object for removal by pulling the thumb slide (a) back. ¿ simultaneously, withdraw the basket and the ureteroscope from the urinary system. " (b)(4).
