Manufacturer Narrative
Evaluation summary: a device history review revealed no discrepancies that may have contributed to a complaint of this failure mode. All quality assurance testing performed during manufacturing was acceptable. The quality assurance review of the visual, physical and dimensional evaluation results indicated that the product met specification requirements. In addition, all dhr (device history review) are reviewed for accuracy prior to product release. The physical sample involved in the reported incident was not returned for evaluation. One photo was provided by the customer. Visual evaluation of this photo was performed; the picture show a duals catheter relaxed over one tray together a guide wire; in the image could not see any defect related with the reported condition. In addition, the device showed signs of manipulation (sample outside of the original package and guide rolled outside your its dispenser). The photo provided does not allow determining any related defect with reported condition. This defect has not been confirmed. The product sample was not returned to the manufacturing site for review. Based on the available information, it can be concluded that product was manufactured according to specifications; therefore the most probable cause can be considered as misuse; this defect was more likely patient related condition / catheter placement by the user.
