Manufacturer Narrative
The clamp device is essential to occlude the aorta and provide the necessary cardiac isolation required to perform minimally invasive cardiac surgery procedures.If the balloon bursts during a procedure, the heart would fill and warm, the operative site may be obscured and the procedure may need to convert to an open procedure.In this case, all fragments were able to be retrieved the patient was reported to be doing fine.Follow up for the device is still in progress and the investigation is pending.A supplemental report will be submitted upon receipt of additional information.
Event Description
It was reported that the balloon of an intra-aortic occlusion catheter ruptured during use.As reported, the patient¿s aorta size was 3.2 and there was no a high amount of calcification.The total inflation volume was not provided.The surgical team struggled with getting complete occlusion throughout the entire case and bleeding was noticed.The balloon was not repositioned during the case.There were no sewing sutures near the balloon when the rupture occurred.The balloon pressure was maintained in the 200-250 range which was also the internal pressure prior to rupture.The duration of use prior to the balloon burst was unknown.The surgeon waited until the repair was done before adding volume to the balloon.The balloon rupture immediately after 2cc of saline was added.All fragments were able to be retrieved.The team was able to finish the case without additional clamping.The patient was reported to be doing fine.
