Event Description
Information was received from a healthcare provider via a clinical study regarding a patient receiving fentanyl (1948. 3 mcg/ml at 1415. 7 mcg/day), bupivacaine (20. 0 mg/ml at 14. 533 mg/day), and morphine (5. 4 mg/ml at 3. 9239 mg/day) via an implanted pump. The indication for use was non-malignant pain and lumbar radiculopathy. It was reported the patient had a catheter access port (cap) contrast study performed on (b)(6) 2018, and the catheter was followed from the pump to the spine with no leaks seen. Contrast could be seen exiting the intrathecal catheter tip at the t8 level and dispersing freely without restriction. A catheter kink was detected around the anchor site. The clinical diagnosis was increased pain. It was indicated the event was related to the device or therapy and unlikely related to the implant procedure. It was noted the system would require surgical revision. The outcome was noted as ongoing.

Event Description
Additional information was received from a company representative (rep) indicated she was going to be assisting the doctor with a catheter revision this afternoon on (b)(6)2018. It was found to be kinking at the catheter anchor. This patient had a recent catheter access port (cap) dye study and the physician was concerned. When the physician pulled down on the catheter he could see dye moving through and when relaxed it would not go through the catheter. The kink was confirmed via dye study. Symptoms were not reported at this time. The event date was asked, and unknown. The rep called back after the catheter revision was completed. A picture of the kink was provided. The kink was noted at the distal or intrathecal end of the anchor. The doctor did state he inserted this catheter at a little more of an angle due to the patient¿s size. The physician noted a little more torque on the catheter at the connection with the pin connector and collets. The patient had complaints of a gradual change in therapy prior to this finding. She was unsure when the change in therapy occurred. Some of the reservoir volumes were provided and on (b)(6)2018 the expected residual volume ( erv) was 5. 1 mls (milliliters) and the actual residual volume (arv) was 10 ml. On (b)(6)2018, the erv was 3. 9 mls and the arv was 9 mls. The catheter was received for analysis. Additional information was also received from a healthcare professional (hcp) via a clinical study indicated the catheter portion was specified as the intrathecal/spinal portion. The event was related to the device or therapy and not related to the implant procedure. No further complications were reported/anticipated or expected.
