CYBERONICS, INC. LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 08/01/2009
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was reported to mfr that the vns pt began experiencing a recent onset of painful stimulation in the chest and abdominal area, which occurred erratically, not with every stimulation cycle. Additionally, there was report of an increase in seizures activity, below the pre-vns baseline. Both system and normal mode diagnostic tests were preformed following the onset of the reported event and revealed normal device function. The physician believes that there is a device issue, and has referred the pt for surgery to replace the lead and the generator. X-rays were taken and sent to mfr for review where there were no gross lead discontinuities observed, and there were no other obvious anomalies visualized which could be contributing to the events. There was no report of trauma or manipulation of the device prior to the onset of the reported events, however, the mother reports that the pt is a "rowdy kid".

Manufacturer Narrative

Mfr reviewed x-rays of implanted device. X-rays reviewed by the mfr, no gross lead discontinuities visualized. Device failure is suspected, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.
