Manufacturer Narrative
Investigation - evaluation: visual inspection and functional testing of the returned device was conducted during the investigation. A review of complaint history, the device history record, instructions for use, and quality control data was also performed. One device was returned for investigation. The device was returned with the handle in the open position. The basket formation was returned partially open and there is a gap in the basket formation. The collet knob is tight and secure. The male luer lock adapter (mlla) is loose. The polyethylene terephthalate tubing (pett) measures 3. 5 cm in length. A visual examination noted the basket sheath is kinked 1 mm from the support sheath. A functional test noted the handle does not actuate the basket formation. A closer observation noted the kink on the basket sheath is severed with the weave exposed. Also, the clear sheath covering the basket wires is wrinkled. The device history records were reviewed and found no non-conformances that would have contributed to the reported failure mode. A review of complaint history revealed this is the only complaint associated with lot number 8407495. The instructions for use (ifu) provides the following: suggested handling instructions for extractors and forceps caution: sterile if the package is unopened or undamaged. Do not use if package is broken. Important: enclose device in sheath before removing from tray/holder. Important: excessive force could damage device. A review of relevant manufacturing documents was conducted. It was concluded that the device aspect in question was visually/functionally inspected by quality control and no related gaps in production or processing controls were noted. Devices are inspected for damage and functionality prior to packaging. The complaint device was found to have a basket that would not fully open and close due to sheath damage. The sheath was found to be kinked near the handle. The kink prevented the basket subassembly from moving freely within the sheath when the handle was operated. Devices are inspected for damage and functionality prior to packaging. The observed damage likely occurred during handling of the device. The ifu contains cautions about manipulating the device to prevent damage. The likely cause for this issue was product use or handling related ¿ the product received excessive pressure. Per the quality engineering risk assessment, no further action is required. Cook medical has notified the appropriate personnel and will continue to monitor this device via the complaints database for similar complaints.
