Manufacturer Narrative

Concomitant: boston scientific 0. 035 wire guide; cook, quantum inflation device, qid-1. Investigation evaluation: the product said to be involved was returned in an open pouch from the lot number provided in the report. The label matches the product returned. Our laboratory evaluation of the product said to be involved confirmed the report. During a functional test, a cook ds-60cc-s syringe was filled with water and attached to the balloon inflation port. The syringe was placed into an inflation handle, and negative pressure was applied to the balloon. After applying negative pressure, the balloon was inflated with water. The balloon would not hold pressure and water was seen leaking from a pinhole on the distal side of the balloon. A visual examination of the catheter showed a kink at 10. 4 cm and 11. 5 cm from the distal end. The pre-loaded wire guide was not included in the return of the device. A product-specific discrepancy that could have caused or contributed to this observation was not observed during our laboratory analysis. 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: the additional information provided indicated that the balloon did not receive negative pressure prior to advancement. This is the most likely cause for the reported observation. Failure to apply negative pressure to the balloon prior to advancement through the endoscope can result in a pinhole in the balloon material. The instructions for use direct the user: "to facilitate passage through the endoscope, apply negative pressure to the device. " the application of negative pressure will aspirate all residual air from the balloon and ease endoscopic advancement. Negative pressure will also aid in balloon preservation and optimize balloon performance. The instructions for use also advise the user: ¿maintain balloon deflation with negative pressure and introduce into endoscope accessory channel, advancing in short increments until balloon is completely visualized endoscopically. ¿ a pinhole in the balloon can also occur if the balloon material comes into contact with a sharp object or a burr in the endoscope channel. Prior to distribution, all hercules 3 stage wireguided balloons esophageal-pyloric-colonic are subjected to a visual examination to ensure device integrity. A review of the device history record confirmed that the lot said to be involved met all manufacturing requirements prior to shipment. Corrective action: 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 negative pressure was not applied to the device, 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.
