Manufacturer Narrative
Manufacturing review: the device history records have been reviewed with special attention to the raw materials, subassemblies, manufacturing process and quality control testing. This lot met all release criteria. There was nothing found to indicate there was a manufacturing related cause for this event. This is the only event reported to date for this lot number and failure mode. Medical records review: the patient presented status post motor vehicle collision with trauma for vena cava filter placement. The filter was deployed via femoral access and positioned at the inner space of l1 and l2 below the renal veins. The patient tolerated the procedure well. There was no further information noted regarding the patient¿s current status. Investigation summary: the device was not returned for evaluation. Images were not provided for review. Medical records were provided and reviewed. There was no specific deficiency alleged in the provided medical records. Therefore, the investigation is inconclusive as no objective evidence has been provided to confirm any alleged deficiency with the filter. Based upon the available information, the definitive root cause is unknown. Labeling review: the current ifu (instructions for use) states: potential complications: - acute or recurrent pulmonary embolism. This has been reported despite filter usage. It is not known if thrombi passed through the filter, or originated from superior or collateral vessels. Procedures requiring percutaneous interventional techniques should not be attempted by physicians unfamiliar with the possible complications. Complications may occur at any time during or after the procedure. The information provided by bard represents all of the known information at this time. Despite good faith efforts to obtain additional information, the complainant / reporter was unable or unwilling to provide any further patient, product, or procedural details to bard.
