CYBERONICS, INC. LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 11/10/2009
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

It was reported that a vns pt was at risk of having his vns lead protruding due to lack of slack on the implanted lead, as the pt's body is growing. A neurosurgeon evaluated the pt and stated that the strain relief loop in the neck is being pulled as the pt grows. The surgeon plans to have the battery replaced soon, and would like to avoid changing the lead as the device is within normal limits (no specifics given). Additional info was received from the surgeon's office indicating the lead is not protruding, and the surgeon believes the event of lead pulling is related to the pt's normal growth. Further info was received through clinic notes dated 2009 indicating the pt was experiencing pain on the left side of the neck, and indicated the pt will pick at the lead and would project through the skin superficially. Another clinic note from three months later, indicated that at the moment there were no plans to replace the pt's lead, but exploratory surgery was scheduled in which the generator would be replaced prophylactically as the pt's mother wants the generator replaced.
