Manufacturer Narrative
Concomitant medical products: cook tracer metro direct wire guide, metii-35-480, erbe electrosurgical generator investigation evaluation: our laboratory evaluation of the product said to be involved determined the cutting wire securing component located near the distal end of the sphincterotome has disconnected from the catheter. The cutting wire is intact and remains securely attached to the sphincterotome at the proximal end. However, due to the catheter and securing component disconnection, the distal end of the cutting wire is no longer connected to the sphincterotome catheter at the distal end. The securing component measures 5 mm, therefore no part of the device is missing. The cutting wire shows evidence of cautery application. A product discrepancy or anomaly that could have contributed to this reported occurrence was not observed. 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. In addition, 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 additional information provided indicated that the sphincterotome was shaped manually. This type of damage can occur if the distal end if the catheter is shaped manually. This may have contributed to the reported observation. This sphincterotome catheter is pre-curved and is provided with a pre-curved stylet in the distal tip of the catheter. This obviates the need for manual formation. The instructions for use contain the following comment: ¿note: do not apply manual pressure to tip or cutting wire of sphincterotome to influence orientation, as this may result in damage to device. ¿ prior to distribution, all tri-tome pc protector sphincterotomes are subjected to a visual inspection and functional test to ensure device integrity. The functional test includes bowing the sphincterotome to ensure the distal end responds to handle manipulation. 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. 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. Additional comments regarding this report: based on the information provided that the sphincterotome was manually formed, a cook representative has been directed to contact the medical facility involved in an effort to promote further education and understanding related to appropriate usage of this product.
 
Event Description
During an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ercp), the physician used a cook tri-tome pc protector sphincterotome. When the physician did a sphincterotomy procedure, the cutting wire was cut [cutting wire broke in one location]. There was no reportable information at this time. The device was evaluated on 11/27/2017 and it was observed that the cutting wire securing component separated from the catheter.
