Manufacturer Narrative
Additional information was received that the patient passed away due to multiple organ failure due to sepsis. The explanted devices were not returned to bsn as they were discarded by the medical facility. A review of the manufacturing documentation for the devices revealed that no anomalies or deviations potentially related to the event occurred during manufacturing. A review of the sterilization documentation for the devices was found to be satisfactory.
 
Event Description
A report was received that the patient was hospitalized 2 weeks post implant due to suspected infection at the midline incision. The patient complained of not feeling well. The patients wounds were checked and revealed one site having surface area oozing, with no significant pus at the incision sites. Both incision sites were cleaned, new dressings were placed and antibiotics were administered. The patient became very unwell in the next 48 hours and was transferred to another facility. She was explanted, intubated and required medication to stabilize her blood pressure. There is no evidence to suggest the infection was device or procedure related. The physician assessed the patient to have critical condition sepsis and he does not expect the patient to survive.
