Manufacturer Narrative

Manufacturing review: as the lot number for the device was not provided, a manufacturing review could not be performed. Investigation summary: the device was not returned for evaluation. Images and medical records were not provided for review. Therefore, the investigation is inconclusive for perforation and migration as no objective evidence has been provided to confirm any alleged deficiency with the filter. Based upon the available information, the definitive root cause is unknown. Labeling review: a review of product labeling documents (e. G. Procedural instructions, indications, warnings, precautions, cautions, possible complications, contraindications, and unit label) showed that the product labeling is adequate. 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.

 
Event Description

It was reported through the litigation process that some time post vena cava filter deployment the filter perforated into the duodenum and migrated. There were no reported attempts made to retrieve the filter. The status of the patient is unknown.
