(b)(4). The reported device is not available for evaluation and has been discarded.

 
Event Description

It was reported that a gunther tulip ivc filter that was placed in 2009 and had never been manipulated was discovered to have multiple fractures during a retrieval attempt. One small piece was extravascular and left behind. At the time of this report, additional information including patient outcome had been requested but not yet received.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

Investigation - evaluation: a review of the complaint history and specifications were conducted during the investigation. The complaint device was not returned; therefore no physical examination could be performed; in addition no imaging was provided. Therefore, it would be inappropriate to speculate at what may or may not have occurred based on the limited information made available to us. Filter fracture is a known potential complication of vena cava filters. Both symptomatic and asymptomatic events have been reported. Fracture of a filter leg can be due to repetitive motion on a filter leg in an unusual stressed position. Among other causes, filter fracture may be associated with a filter leg perforating the ivc, a filter leg being caught in a side branch (e. G. Renal vein), excessive force or manipulations near an implanted filter (e. G. A surgical procedure in the vicinity of a filter) and / or procedures that involve other devices being passed through an in situ filter. It has been reported that retrieval of a fractured filter or filter fragments using endovascular techniques is possible. Fracture of the wire is a known risk in relation to an implanted filter and reported in the published scientific literature. It is known from the published scientific literature that filter fragment embolized into the heart or lung may be safely retrieved. 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. Based on the information provided, no product returned, and the results of our investigation; a definitive root cause could not be determined. Per the risk assessment appropriate personnel have been notified and monitoring will continue to be performed for similar complaints.
