Manufacturer Narrative
Concomitant medical products: cook fusion locking device, fs-wl-o-s. Erbe, electrosurgical generator. Investigation evaluation: our evaluation of the product said to be involved confirmed the report. There is wire guide coating damage near the distal end. A portion of the black pebax coating measuring approximately 3. 5 cm is stuck in the sphincterotome and has detached from the core wire at the distal end exposing bare core wire. The platinum coil spring has unraveled approximately 11. 5 cm in length, however the proximal end of the coil spring remains attached to the wire guide. There is another area of bare core wire measuring 2 mm approximately 8. 5 cm from the distal end. The sphincterotome zip through channel has been stripped along the entire length to a point approximately 6. 5 cm from the distal end. A nonconformity that could be related to the observation reported by the user was found in the wire guide subassembly. A review of the specification was conducted and a 100% visual inspection of the coating on the wire guide is performed and inspects for any damage or deformities. This inspection process would have removed any products having this nonconformance prior to distribution. Therefore, a discrepancy or anomaly was not observed with the product that was released for distribution. 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: a definitive cause for this observation could not be determined because the actual use conditions could not be duplicated in the laboratory setting. Due to a variety of clinical conditions such as patient anatomy, endoscope position, or progression of disease state, we could not reproduce the actual conditions of product usage during our laboratory analysis. This limits our ability to conclusively determine a cause. The instructions for use instruct the user to do the following: "for best results, wire guide should be kept wet. " failure to flush the wire guide can result in damage to the wire guide. If additional pressure is applied to the wire guide and/or accessory device(s) while moving the wire guide inside the accessory device(s), this could contribute to wire guide coating damage. Prior to distribution, all fusion omni-tome pre-loaded sphincterotomes are subjected to a visual inspection 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 and this represents an isolated occurrence. 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 an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ercp), the physician used a cook fusion omni-tome pre-loaded sphincterotome. After cannulation, the doctor wanted to exchange the sphincterotome leaving the guidewire in place. He unlocked the wire after he pulled the sphincterotome through the endoscope over the wire, but when the nurse tried to do the exchange she could not pull the sphincterotome over the wire as the coating had shredded off [coating damage]. We then had to start cannulating again with a new sphincterotome and wire [lost wire guide access]. The device was evaluated on 10/10/17 and it was observed the coil spring assembly detached from the core wire.
