CYBERONICS, INC. LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 07/01/2009
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

Reporter indicated that during a generator replacement surgery, it was noted that portions of the patient's neck appeared to be stimulated. Examination of the lead by the surgeon found that there was a bubble, and abrasion in the lead insulation. The surgeon suspected that the issue the patient was experiencing was likely due to current being leaked to the tissues surrounding the vagus nerve, instead of only the vagus nerve. The surgeon proceeded to replace both the generator and the lead. Attempts to have the explanted lead returned for analysis were unsuccessful as the product was discarded.
