Manufacturer Narrative
A 3x150mm 155cm saber rx percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (pta) catheter was inserted, but there was difficulty crossing the calcification. Then, the distal tip got frayed. Therefore, it was replaced with a new balloon catheter. The procedure completed successfully. There was no reported patient injury. The target lesion was from the superficial femoral artery to the below the knee (bk). The patient¿s information, patient¿s vessel level of tortuousness, vessel was calcified and rate of stenosis was unknown. Multiple attempts were made without success to obtain additional information. The device was not returned for analysis because the patient had an infectious disease. A device history record (dhr) review of lot 17335227 revealed no anomalies or non-conformances during the manufacturing and inspection processes that can be associated with the reported event. The reported ¿distal tip frayed/split/torn¿ could not confirmed as the device was not returned for analysis. The exact cause of the failure experienced could not be determined. Based on the limited information available for review, vessel characteristics (crossing difficulty the lesion) and handling factors may have contributed to the reported frayed tip. According to the instructions for use, which is not intended as a mitigation, ¿prior to angioplasty, the catheter should be examined to verify functionality and integrity, and ensure that its size and shape are suitable for the specific procedure for which it is to be used. Do not use if product damage is suspected or evident. Proper functioning of the catheter depends on its integrity. Care should be used when handling the catheter. Damage may result from kinking, stretching, or forceful wiping of the catheter. Forceful handling can result in catheter separation and the subsequent need to use a snare or other medical interventional techniques to retrieve the pieces. Always verify integrity of the catheter after removal. ¿ neither the dhr nor the information available suggests a design or manufacturing related cause for the reported event. Therefore, no corrective/preventive action will be taken at this time.
