Event Description
Medtronic received a report that the pipeline pushwire broke. The patient was undergoing surgery for treatment of a saccular, unruptured aneurysm in the internal carotid artery with a 4. 33x4. 7mm landing zone. It was noted the patient's vessel tortuosity was minimal. It was reported that after deployment, the doctor attempted to capture the delivery system, but it felt different. The system was removed without any issues, and then it was noted the proximal segment of the pushwire had broken. The broken segment was removed from the patient via the microcatheter, and there was no friction or difficulty noted. It was indicated that all devices were prepared as per the instructions for use (ifu), and no patient symptoms or further complications were reported as a result of this event.
