Event Description

It was reported that vns pt had generator replacement due to normal end of service. When the new generator was attached to the lead during surgery, they received high impedance. Surgeon tried re-inserting the pin three times and they were sure the pin was fully inserted, but they still received high impedance. Surgeon then decided to replace the lead. When he opened the neck site to expose the vagus nerve he reported, "the electrodes were broken and looked like they had been snapped off of the nerve. " they ran system diagnostics with the new lead and everything was within normal limits. Attempts for further info are in progress. Product analysis is pending on the generator and lead.
