Manufacturer Narrative

From the information provided, there is no indication that there was any device malfunction, nonconformance, or misuse that contributed to the reported event. Potential adverse events with the penumbra system include acute occlusion, death, device malfunction, emboli, hematoma or hemorrhage at the site, inability to completely remove thrombus, intracranial hemorrhage, ischemia, dissection or perforation and are included in the labeling. Therefore, it was determined that the reported symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage was an anticipated complication. The product was not returned for evaluation. Without the return of the device, the root cause of the problem cannot be determined. The manufacturing records for this lot were reviewed and did not reveal any outstanding discrepancies, design, or quality concerns. This report is associated with mfr report number: 3005168196-2019-00178.

 
Event Description

On (b)(6) 2018, the patient underwent a thrombectomy procedure in the m1 segment of the middle cerebral artery (mca) using a penumbra system 3d reperfusion catheter (psr3d) and a neuron max 6f 088 long sheath (neuron max). During the procedure, the physician used a penumbra system ace 68 reperfusion catheter (ace68) to aspirate twice with the psr3d. The physician then aspirated twice with a non-penumbra stent retriever in the anterior cerebral artery (aca) and the posterior cerebral artery (pca), through the posterior communicating artery (pcom). After the procedure, the patient had a tici 3, and was admitted into the stroke unit. The patient remained with left hemiplegia and a good level of consciousness. It was reported that the patient had a midline displacement of approximately 6 mm. In the morning on (b)(6) 2018, the patient¿s condition worsened, and the patient had a tendency for sleepiness. It was reported that a computed tomography (ct scan) was taken, and a hemorrhagic transformation of the right mca infarction was determined. Later in the day, the patient glasgow coma scale (gcs) started to decline to 9 and the patient experienced continued neurological deterioration into the evening, requiring endotracheal intubation. On (b)(6) 2018, the patient's corneal reflex disappeared with persistent cough reflex and spontaneous breathing, spontaneous extension movements with right arm, and mid-sized pupils. On (b)(6) 2018, an ultrasound was performed and showed a spiked pattern at the carotid siphon/right mca, and no flow at the vertebral-basilar arterial system. The patient expired the same day. The cause of death is currently unknown. The symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (ich) was adjudicated to have a possible relationship to the psr3d, neuron max and to the index procedure. On 28-feb-2019, additional information was received indicating that the symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sich) may also be possibly related to the neuron max.
