CYBERONICS, INC. BIPOLAR LEAD 300 Back to Search Results
Model Number 300.20
Event Date 07/01/2009
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was reported by the surgeon that the patient underwent a full revision surgery due to lead disconnected from nerve. X-rays were taken which clearly showed top lead disconnected from the nerve. X-rays were not available for further manufacturer review. No patient manipulation or trauma was reported. Explanted products were returned to manufacturer for further review. Analysis was completed on the lead and reported allegation of high lead impedance was not confirmed. Condition of the returned lead portions is consistent with conditions that typically exist following an explant procedure. No obvious anomalies were noted.

Manufacturer Narrative

"electrode detach from nerve is beyond the scope of activities performed in the product analysis lab". The portion of the lead that was returned for analysis did not reveal any anomalies. However, a device failure is suspected, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.
