Event Description
Information was received from a healthcare provider (hcp) regarding a patient receiving gablofen (1000 mcg/ml, 300 mcg/day) via an implantable infusion pump for the treatment of intractable spasticity an head/brain injury. New drug dosage would be 325 mcg/day). It was reported that actual reservoir volume (arv) was greater than expected reservoir volume (erv). On (b)(6) 2018, arv was 15 (ml) and erv was 3. 7 (ml). On (b)(6) 2018, arv was 15. 5 (ml) and erv was 2. 5 (ml). Refills prior to (b)(6) 2018 showed no volume discrepancies. The patient had no falls or trauma that they know of that might have contributed to the change. X-ray was done and showed no issue. No patient symptom was reported. No further complication was reported.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
If information is provided in the future, a supplemental report will be issued.
 
Event Description
Additional information was received from the healthcare provider (hcp). It was reported that the cause of volume discrepancy was not determined. The hcp would be doing a side port aspiration on (b)(6) 2018 to check catheter. Baclofen x-ray of pump was performed to check pump and connection sites. The catheter was still in patient and was being monitored. No further complication was reported.

Event Description
Additional information was received from a healthcare provider (hcp) via a device manufacturer representative. It was reported that the patient had difficulties since the original pump and catheter were placed. The pump had evidently always had difficulties when interrogated which occurred again pre-operation on 2018-(b)(6). The programmer took a while to find the pump event though it was clearly visible and not implanted deep at all. Furthermore, when the pump was being read, it would intermittently drop off and ask for the head to be repositioned. There was a slow interrogation. The patient had escalating dosage since implantation and during last refill, expected reservoir volume (erv) was 4cc while actual reservoir volume (arv) was 12cc. Side port aspiration was unsuccessful. Surgical intervention was performed. Old catheter did not flow in surgery and was then cut in the back incision after which cerebrospinal fluid (csf) began. Hcp then replaced the old pump segment and pump. He then tested the catheter via the side port and the catheter was patent once again. It was unknown if any environmental/external/patient factors that may have led or contributed to the issue. The issue was resolved and patient status was alive with no injury at the time of the report. The pump was later returned with no new information. No further complication was reported.
