Manufacturer Narrative

Concomitant medical products: merit medical big60 inflation device. Investigation evaluation: device 1 - our laboratory evaluation of the product said to be involved confirmed the report. A functional test was performed on the returned device. A cook dilation syringe (ds-60cc-s) 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 and the balloon would not hold pressure. A leak was seen from a pinhole on the proximal side of the balloon. A visual inspection of the catheter showed no kinks or bends. The pre-loaded wire guide was not included in the return. A product-specific discrepancy that could have caused or contributed to this observation was not observed during our laboratory analysis. Device 2 - our laboratory evaluation of the product said to be involved confirmed the report. A functional test was performed on the returned device. A cook dilation syringe (ds-60cc-s) 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 and the balloon would not hold pressure. A leak was seen from three pinholes, two (2) on the distal side, and one (1) on the proximal side of the balloon. A visual inspection of the catheter showed no kinks or bends. The pre-loaded wire guide was not included in the return. A product-specific discrepancy that could have caused or contributed to this observation was not observed during our laboratory analysis. Device 3 - our laboratory evaluation of the product said to be involved confirmed the report. A functional test was performed on the returned device. A cook dilation syringe (ds-60cc-s) 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 and the balloon would not hold pressure. A leak was seen from a pinhole on the distal side of the balloon. A visual inspection of the catheter showed kinks at 10 cm and 11. 5 cm from the distal end. The pre-loaded wire guide was not included in the return. 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 was pre-inflated prior to advancement through the endoscope accessory channel. This is the most likely cause for the reported observation. Advancement of a pre-inflated balloon through the endoscope accessory channel can result in a leakage if the balloon material comes into contact with a sharp object or a burr in the endoscope channel. The instructions for use caution the user: "do not pre-inflate the balloon. " it is also unknown if the user applied negative pressure and lubrication to the balloon prior to advancement down the endoscope accessory channel. A possible contributing factor to a leakage in the balloon material is failure to apply negative pressure and lubrication to the balloon prior to advancement through the endoscope. 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. ¿ the application of lubrication will aid in endoscopic advancement and balloon preservation. The instructions for use advise the user: "apply a lubricating agent to the balloon to facilitate passage through the endoscope accessory 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 the balloons were pre-inflated, against the instructions for use, 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.

 
Event Description

During a dilation procedure, the physician chose three (3) cook hercules 3 stage wireguided balloons esophageal-pyloric-colonic from the same lot. Each of the three (3) balloons popped during this procedure. They were able to successfully complete the procedure.
