Manufacturer Narrative
Analysis of the pump found no anomalies. Analysis of the 8711 catheter revealed a hole caused by deep abrasion on the catheter body. If information is provided in the future, a supplemental report will be issued.
 
Event Description
Additional information was received via a healthcare provider (hcp) indicated the patient had a fall in (b)(6)2016 and in (b)(6)2016 at a refill, a spinal fluid leak was noted and the patient had significant abdominal pain with spasms and pain at their lumbar incision. Those events occurred at another facility and the nurse did not have further information on the events from that facility. Subsequently, the patient presented to the current facility and was found to have a sub-optimal baclofen dose. The patient's baclofen dose was gradually increased with some, but not significant improvement in their spasms. The pump was noted to be tilted at a 45 degree angle, which was presumed to have been a result of the fall in (b)(6) of 2016, but was still able to be refilled easily. However, they were unable to access the catheter access port on an unspecified date and the patient was taken to surgery on 09-jun-2017 for a pump exploration. As a result of the pump exploration surgery on (b)(6)2017, the pump was replaced with a 40 ml pump and the catheter was revised. The nurse had no additional information regarding that surgical procedure. It was further reported the patient was receiving intrathecal gablofen and the patient's weight was (b)(6). The patient had surgery on (b)(6)2017, which involved baclofen pump replacement and extra spinal catheter revision for partial catheter tear (extra-spinal). The patient was discharged from the hospital on post-operative day 1, after 24 hours in hospital. The patient was increased from initial post-op dosing of 300 mcg/day simple continuous to 360 mcg/day, on post-op day 1. Additional medications the patient was receiving included: oxycodone prn, lorazepam prn, belvig, desonide topical, baclofen oral prn for withdrawal symptoms, tylenol prn, mupirocin topical, percocet scheduled and prn, promethazine, cyancocbalamin, hydrochlorothiazide, potassium chloride, gabapentin, sertraline, methylphenidate, torsemide, methadone, marinol prn. It was noted the patient was not hospitalized after her pump replacement to the hcp¿s knowledge and discharged on post-op day 1. No further complications were reported/anticipated or expected.
