CYBERONICS, INC. LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 10/22/2009
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

Initial rptr indicated that the pt was in clinic with severe pain in their neck area. The pt had been reporting shortness of breath and painful stimulation that had occurred sometime in the last week. The pt had not had any trauma or injury to the area. The pt reported that their stimulation feels much stronger now than it previously had, although no settings changes had been made. X-rays were reviewed at the mfr. In the ap view, an acute angle was observed in the lead body near one of the tie-downs. It cannot be determined if this acute angle is contributing to the dcdc = 0. A lead discontinuity cannot be ruled out. No other obvious anomalies were observed in the portions of the lead visualized that could be contributing to the reported dcdc = 0 results. At this time, no surgical plans have been made for the pt's vns. Their vns was programmed off on (b) (6) 2009.

Manufacturer Narrative

Mfr reviewed x-rays of implanted device. X-rays reviewed by mfr, no gross lead break seen. An area noted with a possible acute angle lead break cannot be ruled out.
