Event Description

According to the reporter, during laparoscopic hernia, surgeon tried to stabilize the mesh but the tacker didn't work. No tacks were able to be fired normally from the device. Due to the problem, it damaged the mesh. Surgeon used another mesh and tacker device to resolve the issue to complete the case. No patient injury.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

Evaluation summary: post market vigilance (pmv) led an evaluation of one device. A visual inspection noted that the timing was disrupted and a tack was protruding from the tip of the device. A functional evaluation found that the trigger was actuated and the remaining twenty-four tacks deployed but did not seat properly due to the disrupted timing. Records from each manufacturing lot are thoroughly reviewed to ensure that products are released meeting all quality release specifications at the time of manufacture. Replication of the reported condition is caused by an instrument that has been exposed to excessive force while applying helixes to a surface. If a helix is fired over improper surfaces it can provoke the exertion of excessive force to the handle causing the unit to disrupt the timing and to a possible jam. The root cause of the observed damage was found to be due to the device not being used as intended which caused or contributed to the reported condition. No further actions have been deemed necessary at this time. If information is provided in the future, a supplemental report will be issued.
