  • Causa
    A review was completed of all evolut r product complaints that indicated vascular trauma during use of the enveo r delivery catheter system (dcs) from the date of the first commercial evolut r product (august 2014) through may 2016. this review identified a total of 39 events (occurrence rate of 0,136%), each of which reported insertion, advancement, or positioning difficulties associated with complicated patient anatomy (tortuosity, calcification, bicuspid valve, or existing bioprosthesis). the cause of these vascular trauma complaints has been determined to be related to the difficulties maneuvering the enveo dcs in tortuous or highly calcified patient anatomy, which resulted in physicians manipulating or applying extra force to the dcs, leading to vascular trauma in a small sub-set of attempted evolut r implants. there is no indication of any non-conformance or failure of the dcs to meet requirements.
