Manufacturer Narrative
Manufacturing review: the device history records were 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 complaint reported to date for this lot number and failure mode. Conclusion: the investigation is inconclusive for the alleged peeled pebax, as the sample was not returned for evaluation. The definitive root cause for the reported peeled pebax could not be determined based upon the available information. It is unknown if patient and/or procedural issues contributed to the reported event. Labeling review: the current ifu (instructions for use) states: warnings: do not exceed the rbp recommended for this device. Balloon rupture may occur if the rbp rating is exceeded. To prevent over pressurization, use of a pressure monitoring device is recommended. Precautions: if resistance is felt during post procedure withdrawal of the catheter, it is recommended to remove the balloon catheter and guidewire/introducer sheath as a single unit. Use of the atlas pta dilatation catheter: apply negative pressure to fully evacuate fluid from the balloon. Confirm that the balloon is fully deflated under fluoroscopy. While maintaining negative pressure and the position of the guidewire, withdraw the deflated dilatation catheter over the wire through the introducer sheath. Use of a gentle counterclockwise motion may be used to help facilitate catheter removal through the introducer sheath.
 
Event Description
It was reported that during a fistulagram with balloon angioplasty of the right subclavian and right brachiocephalic vein, the pta balloon material allegedly tore upon removal through the sheath. Upon further examination on the back table, the outer layer of the balloon was visibly torn. There was no reported patient injury.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
No device, no medical records, or no medical images were provided to the manufacturer. The lot number for the device was provided. The device history records are currently under review. The investigation of the reported event is currently underway. Please note, mw5073471 inaccurately indicates lot number as fgbt0355. Based on bpvs lot number criteria, the correct lot number is gfbt0355; which was also verified within bpvs in-house system to be product code at75124. 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.
