Event Description
Fill volume: unknown, flow rate: unknown, procedure: shoulder surgery, cathplace: interscalene block. It was reported that a patient experienced difficulty removing a nerve block catheter. It was noted that the anesthesiologist basically sewed it in and out of the patient's skin, and then did a final insertion. The patient stated that when his wife attempted to remove it, it was not difficult to remove but when she starts to tug at it, the patient feels "an electrical shock and intense pain" as if it were rubbing against a nerve. The patient's wife tried twice, and it was the same scenario both occasions. The patient was advised to call the anesthesiologist to speak with them regarding the issue and the unique way it was inserted. The patient noted a lack of confidence with anesthesia, and opted for the paramedics to come and remove it. The patient went to the surgery center to have the catheter removed by anesthesia. It was suggested that reposition his arm. However, since the patient is post shoulder surgery, he is not allowed to move his arm. The anesthesiologist could not see the catheter under the ultra sound. An attempt to flush it was normal saline was made, but the patient could not tolerate due to the pain. The pain radiated down to his left arm but not his fingers. There was no paresthesia, only pain. The anesthesiologist sent the patient to the local hospital for interventional radiology evaluation. At this time, the patient underwent a ct scan and is now awaiting results. Overall, the patient was doing well. Additional information received on (b)(6) 2017 stated that the patient did go into surgery and had the catheter removed on saturday. The surgery was uneventful. The anesthesiologist noted that the catheter was not difficult to remove once they were able to get under the patient's skin. It was unknown what caused the catheter to be difficult to remove. There were no unusual maneuvers reported by the patient. The anesthesiologist did tunnel this catheter during placement. Additional information received on (b)(6) 2017 stated that the catheter was stuck on the brachial plexus. However, when the patient's skin layers were opened, the catheter fell out and was able to be removed with ease. The patient had no residual pain nor signs of nerve damage. There was no report about any malfunction of the catheter. It was no known reason why this catheter was stuck. No further information was provided.
