Event Description
Information was provided by a healthcare provider (hcp) regarding an implantable intrathecal pump intended to deliver gablofen [2000 mcg/ml] at 2002 mcg/day, indicated for intractable spasticity. It was reported that the patient has had some increased spasticity and the caller was requesting general troubleshooting information. The event date was asked, but unknown. It was stated that at a refill in (b)(6) 2018, the expected reservoir volume (erv) was 3. 9 ml and the actual reservoir volume (arv) was 6 ml. The caller did not have the refill volumes for (b)(6) 2018. As a result of the call, the caller was to discuss further with the physician and also contact the local manufacturer¿s representative to be available for the catheter access port (cap) dye study. No further complications were reported or anticipated. Additional information was received from a healthcare provider on (b)(6) 2018. It was stated that the event is unchanged, and plans are to do a catheter access port (cap) dye study. The caller requested coding information regarding billing of the cap dye study , and was redirected to the therapy access group. No further complications were reported or anticipated. Additional information was received from a healthcare provider (hcp) on (b)(6) 2018. It was reported that it appears the patient's pump catheter may not be attached to his pump. The cause of the volume discrepancy in (b)(6) 2018 was not determined. The hcp inquired if a 2. 1 ml difference was something to worry about, and if the catheter not being attached to the pump could explain the discrepancy. It was indicated that the cause of the increased spasticity had not been determined, but that the hcp thought it was because the catheter is not attached. It was reported that a ua (urine analysis) and an x-ray were performed as diagnostics related to theincreased spasticity. The hcp noted that the pumps are often off by 2 ml, sometimes more, suggesting that they did not consider these volume discrepancies abnormal. It was reported that they would need to send the patient to a surgeon for the catheter issue. It was indicated that the issues had not yet been resolved. No further complications were reported or anticipated. Additional information was received from a healthcare provider on (b)(6) 2018. It was stated that the patent was having a cap dye study done the day of the report. Information was discussed related to the procedure and post-procedure priming bolus. No further complications were reported or anticipated.

Event Description
Additional information was received from a healthcare provider (hcp) via a device manufacturer representative. It was noted that the pump was infusing baclofen (2000 mcg/ml at a dosage of 1711. 9). The patient's medical history included diabetes. It was reported that the therapy was working, but not great. There were no environmental/external/patient factors that may have led or contributed to the issue. Per the healthcare provider (hcp), a study was done, and the pump was fine. The catheter did not really show anything. The catheter was aspirated and appeared to be working, but the hcp said that he wanted to replace it. The catheter was replaced. The issue was resolved at the time of the report. The patient's status at the time of the report was alive - no injury. No further complications were reported.
