Manufacturer Narrative

As reported, the patient underwent placement of an optease inferior vena cava (ivc) filter. The indication for filter placement is not available. The filter subsequently malfunctioned and caused injury and damages to the patient including, but not limited to, dvt, and blood clots / clotting. The filter remains implanted; thus, unavailable for analysis. The product was not returned for analysis and the sterile lot number has not been provided; therefore, no device analysis nor device history record review could be performed. The optease vena cava filter is indicated for use in the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (pe) via percutaneous placement in the vena cava for patients in which anticoagulants are contraindicated, anticoagulant therapy for thromboembolic disease has failed, emergency treatment following massive pulmonary embolism where anticipated benefits of conventional therapy are reduced or for chronic, recurrent pulmonary embolism where anticoagulant therapy has failed, or is contraindicated. The purpose of a vena cava filter is to catch thrombus from the lower extremities as it travels along normal blood flow patterns up towards the heart. Blood clots and occlusive thrombosis within the filter and vasculature do not represent a device malfunction. Clinical factors that may have influenced the event include patient, pharmacological and lesion characteristics. Without procedural films or images for review the reported event(s) could not be confirmed. Given the limited information available for review at this time, there is nothing to suggest that the reported events are related to the design and manufacturing process of the device; therefore, no corrective action will be taken. Should additional information become available, the file will be updated accordingly. Occupation: other, senior counsel, litigation.
