Event Description
It was reported that a patient underwent an ablation procedure with a carto® 3 system and a procedure delay (high risk) occurred. It was reported that during ablation procedure using the carto® 3 system when booting up the workstation and the patient interface unit (piu), the carto® 3 system showed error 1006 ¿back patch sensor error¿. General anesthesia got delayed until the issue could be resolved. Replacing the back patch cables didn¿t resolve the issue. Switching back to the initial back patch cable and restarting both the workstation and the piu with any metal removed from the vicinity of the location pad resolved the issue at first, so the patient was put under general anesthesia. However, the error reoccurred when getting access. When restarting both the piu and workstation again, the process of establishing communication between the piu and workstation (error 1 to error 2 to error 3), restarted after reaching error 3. The location pad cable was tied to the location pad to prevent any strain on the pig tail, all cables were removed from the piu and both the piu and the workstation were shut down and rebooted. After the reboot all patches were showing within the accuracy zone of the location setup. However, patch 3 was showing metal values around 70. Switching over to the spare back patch cable resolved the issue and the procedure could be completed successfully after a delay of approximately one hour. The customer¿s reported location patch issues are not mdr reportable since the issue is highly detectable and the most likely harm is a procedure delay or cancellation. The reportable event is the procedural delay which is considered to be high risk to patient.
