Manufacturer Narrative

Complaint conclusion: the saber (7mm x 6cm 90cm) balloon tip came off the catheter while advancing balloon into patient. The intended procedure was a plain old balloon angioplasty (poba). The device separated approximately 3cm from the distal end. There were no other anomalies noted when the device was removed from the patient. The segment was retrieved via a snare. The balloon was snared. The femoral artery was closed using a competitor device. The access site was the femoral artery. The device was stored and handled per the instructions for use (ifu). There were no anomalies noted when the device was removed from the packaging. There was no difficulty removing the device from the packaging. The device was prepped per the ifu. There were no kinks nor other damages noted prior to inserting the product into the patient. The product, or any of the other devices used with it had not been resterilized. There was no difficulty tracking the device through the vessel to get to the lesion. There was no difficulty crossing the lesion. There was no unusual force used at any time during the procedure. Excessive torquing was not required. Resistance was not met while advancing the device over the guidewire. The device did not kink in the area of separation. Resistance was not met while withdrawing the device. The product was not returned for analysis. A product history record (phr) review of lot 17667978 revealed no anomalies or non-conformances during the manufacturing and inspection processes that can be associated with the reported event. The reported ¿balloon burst-at/below rbp¿ could not be confirmed as the device was not returned for analysis. The exact cause could not be determined. Procedural factors may have contributed to the reported event. According to the safety information in the instructions for use ¿prior to angioplasty, the catheter should be examined to verify functionality and integrity, and ensure that its size and shape are suitable for the specific procedure for which it is to be used. Do not use if product damage is suspected or evident. Deflate the balloon by pulling vacuum on the inflation syringe or inflation device. Apply negative pressures to the balloon for about 30 - 85 seconds until the balloon is deflated. Remove the vacuum (do not apply pressure) and carefully withdraw and remove the catheter. Note: gentle counterclockwise rotation of the balloon may ease withdrawal from the sheath or from the percutaneous entry site. If the balloon cannot be withdrawn through the sheath, withdraw the catheter and sheath as a unit. ¿ neither the phr nor the information available suggests a design or manufacturing related cause for the reported event; therefore, no corrective/preventive action will be taken at this time.

There were no anomalies noted when the device was removed from the packaging. There was no difficulty removing the device from the packaging. The device was prepped per the ifu. There were no kinks nor other damages noted prior to inserting the product into the patient. The product, or any of the other devices used with it had not been resterilized. There was no difficulty tracking the device through the vessel to get to the lesion. There was no difficulty crossing the lesion. There was no unusual force used at any time during the procedure. Excessive torquing was not required. Resistance was not met while advancing the device over the guidewire. The device did not kink in the area of separation. Resistance was not met while withdrawing the device. The device separated approximately 3cm from the distal end. There were no other anomalies noted when the device was removed from the patient. The segment was retrieved via a snare. The balloon was snared, and the femoral artery was closed via star close.
