There was no reported patient injury. The product was not clinically used and only the sterilized pouch will be returned for analysis. This was an endovascular treatment case. The patient¿s information, target lesion, vessel level of tortuousness, calcification and the rate of stenosis was unknown. The integrity of the sterile pouch was not compromised, there was a pinhole on the pouch that was deformed by fever. The product had not been purposely opened in anticipation of use and when not used was re-shelved, the package had no abnormality. The damage was noted before use at the hospital.

Manufacturer Narrative
The following sections have been updated accordingly. A sterilized pouch of a saber rx 6mm 15cm 155cm balloon catheter (bc) was deformed and had hole(s). The damaged part seemed to have been blistered. The procedure finished successfully. There was no reported patient injury. This was an endovascular treatment case. The patient¿s information, target lesion, vessel level of tortuousness, calcification and the rate of stenosis was unknown. The integrity of the sterile pouch was not compromised, there was a pinhole on the pouch that was deformed by fever. The product had not been purposely opened in anticipation of use and when not used was re-shelved, the package had no abnormality. The damage was noted before use at the hospital. The product was sent to the hospital the day before the procedure and stored in a large corrugated board. The actual product was not damaged, it was visually confirmed. The product was used in the procedure. The product was returned for analysis. One non-sterile inner pouch of saber rx 6mm x 15cm155 was returned. Per visual analysis it was noted that the inner package had a rupture with scratched and ripped characteristics. The pouch had been opened; however the complaint description summary states that ¿the product was used in the procedure¿ and the saber product was not returned for analysis. No other anomalies were noted. Per microscopic analysis the scratched and ripped characteristics were confirmed. A product history record (phr) review of lot 17599235 revealed no anomalies or non-conformances during the manufacturing and inspection processes that can be associated with the reported event. The reported ¿packaging/ pouch/box - compromised sterility - sterile barrier breached¿ and ¿packaging/ pouch/box ¿ frayed/split/torn - inner package¿ were confirmed through analysis of the returned product. The exact cause of the event could not be determined during analysis. Based on the information available for review, shipping or handling factors may have contributed to the event as evidenced by scratches and rips noted on the outer surface during analysis. According to the warnings in the safety information in the instructions for use ¿store in a cool, dark, dry place. Use the catheter prior to the ¿use by¿ date specified on the package. Do not use if inner package is opened or damaged. ¿ neither the phr review nor the product analysis suggests that the event experienced by the customer could be related to the manufacturing process; therefore, no corrective/preventive action will be taken at this time.
