Event Description
It was reported the catheter coil was exposed. Additional information received 06-aug-2018 stated: the anesthesiologist performed the block and noted the catheter was sheared. A fascia iliaca block was performed. The catheter was tunneled through the fascia but the catheter was inserted backwards up the needle which the doctor believes was sheared while doing so. Because of this, there is a possibility that the catheter was already sheared while in the patient. They noticed that the catheter was sheared when the catheter was removed. The anesthesiologist believes there " possibly" could be a small piece of the catheter in the patient but was unsure. At that time, the clinicians were not going to proceed with any medical interventions to confirm if there were any pieces left in the patient and or remove any pieces that may have been left. The patient was in stable condition and there was no patient injury reported. No further information to be provided.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
One sample device was returned. The catheter¿s distal tip coating and internal spring were sheared off from the device. The device was evaluated. The instructions for use (ifu) stated, ¿if excessive resistance is encountered, stop, remove both needle and catheter as a unit and attempt new puncture. To avoid shearing catheter, never withdraw catheter back against needle bevel. ¿ based on the tunneling technique described in the complaint as being used by the physician, it was determined that the user failed to properly follow the ifu regarding the instruction to ¿never withdraw the catheter back against the needle bevel. ¿ the root cause was incorrect use.

Event Description
Additional information received 18-sep-2018 stated the physician is not sure if he drew back on the catheter while the needle was in place. The physician did not feel resistance during catheter insertion or withdrawal. It was noted that when doing the tunneling technique you want the catheter insertion to the skin far away from the incision as possible. "you place the catheter next to the nerve like normal then stick the needle in as far away from the incision as you can. You then find the sharp side of the needle and thread the catheter through it and back through the top. " it is possible that when the catheter was threaded through the sharp end of the needle, that is when it was sheared. No further information to be provided.
