CYBERONICS, INC. PULSE GEN MODEL 102 Back to Search Results
Model Number 102
Event Date 01/27/2003
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

This report is submitted to follow-up on the observation that the lead pin was not fully inserted into the generator as reported in mdr 1644487-2009-01703/1. Product analysis on the patient's explanted lead has been completed. During the analysis of the lead, no lead discontinuities were observed. It was noted by the impressions on the lead pin, that the lead pin was not fully inserted into the header of the generator during the time of implant. This condition would prevent electrical connection between the lead and generator, subsequently resulting in high lead impedance when diagnostics are performed thus indicating that the patient is not receiving vns therapy if the device was programmed on. However, despite good faith attempts to the treating vns physician, information regarding vns treatment including programming history data and efficacy was not provided to the manufacturer.
