Manufacturer Narrative

As reported, a patient underwent placement of an optease inferior vena cava (ivc) filter. The indication for filter placement is not available. The filter subsequently malfunctioned and caused injury and damage to the patient, including, but not limited to, a scan noted that the filter has tilted and is angulated. The filter remains implanted; thus, unavailable for analysis. The product was not returned for analysis and the sterile lot number has not been provided; therefore, no device analysis nor device history record review could be performed. The optease vena cava filter is indicated for use in the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (pe) via percutaneous placement in the vena cava for patients in which anticoagulants are contraindicated, anticoagulant therapy for thromboembolic disease has failed, emergency treatment following massive pulmonary embolism where anticipated benefits of conventional therapy are reduced or for chronic, recurrent pulmonary embolism where anticoagulant therapy has failed, or is contraindicated. The purpose of a vena cava filter is to catch thrombus from the lower extremities as it travels along normal blood flow patterns up towards the heart. Without procedural films for review, the filter tilt reported could not be confirmed. Additionally, the timing and mechanism of the filter tilt is unknown. Ivc filter tilt has been associated with the anatomy of the vessel, specifically asymmetry and tortuousness. Clinical factors that may have influenced the event include patient, pharmacological and lesion characteristics. Without procedural films or images for review the reported event(s) could not be confirmed. Given the limited information available for review at this time, there is nothing to suggest that the reported events are related to the design and manufacturing process of the device; therefore, no corrective action will be taken. Should additional information become available, the file will be updated accordingly.

 
Event Description

As reported in the legal brief, a patient underwent placement of an optease vena cava filter. The filter subsequently malfunctioned and caused injury and damage to the patient, including, but not limited to, a scan noted that the filter has tilted and is angulated. The patient is at risk of suffering injuries, possibly permanent and life-threatening, and will require extensive medical care, monitoring and treatment due to long term implant of the ivc filter. The patient suffered and will continue to suffer significant medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disability and other losses, not limited to the apprehension and risk associated with retaining a defective device inside the body.
