Manufacturer Narrative
The product has been returned to the manufacturer, but is pending investigation. Once the investigation is completed a supplemental report with our findings will be submitted. (b)(4).
 
Event Description
It was reported that during intra-aortic balloon (iab) therapy the iab ruptured and was removed. After which, the patient required surgery for a retroperitoneal bleed. The patient moved their leg causing more bleeding which required a second surgery to repair the external iliac artery. The patient had an arterial hemorrhage from external iliac artery, just above the inguinal ligament. The patient received 12 units of packed red blood cells, 1 unit of platelets, and 9 units of fresh frozen plasma. According to the vascular surgeon the insertion site was a little elevated and difficult to hold pressure on. The customer stated that there were complications during insertion due to patient aortic calcification, peripheral vascular disease, temporary dialysis catheter was below insertion site of iab. The hemorrhage occurred 16 hours after initiation of therapy and therapy was interrupted by the iab rupture. A new iab was not reinserted.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
The product was returned with the membrane completely unfolded and blood on the exterior and interior of the catheter. The returned sheath was covering the proximal side of the balloon by a membrane taper only. An underwater leak test of the balloon, catheter, y-fitting, and extracorporeal tubing was performed and one leak was detected on the membrane approximately 0. 3cm from the rear seal measuring 0. 064cm in length. The reported leak was most likely triggered by a leak which was found on the membrane. Under magnification, a whitish patch was observed around the leak. This whitish patch is the typical appearance of an abrasion mark which is caused by calcified plaque in the aorta. A device and lot history record review was completed for the reported product. No nonconformances were found that are considered to be related to the event. (b)(4).
