Manufacturer Narrative
The physician in this procedure was male. Patient information not obtained for this event; there is no reported patient harm.
 
Event Description
A peripheral vascular intervention commenced to treat a lesion in the patient's superficial femoral artery (sfa). During use of the spectranetics turbo elite device, it was reported that the physician felt a sensation which felt warm through his glove. He expressed discomfort in his finger. The location of this occurrence was reportedly where the physician's fingers were placed while the device was in use, outside of the patient's body. It was believed that the physician's glove remained intact, and it was reported that no first aid or intervention was required for this area on the physician's finger. The procedure was completed with the device and the patient survived the procedure. In addition, due to the description of the event reported to the manufacturer, this event is being reported due to the potential for exposure to manufacturing materials as well as inadvertent exposure to laser energy/radiation, in the event that the device was broken. The manufacturer is anticipating the return of the device for evaluation but has not yet arrived at the manufacturer.
