CYBERONICS, INC. LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 03/13/2010
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

It was initially reported that the pt would experience an "electrical shock" in her neck with device stimulation. The pt stated she placed her magnet over the device to temporarily inhibit stimulation however this made the pain worse. The physician in the er who saw the pt did not believe this issue was serious and indicated that the pt was making herself more anxious over the stimulation. The pt followed up with her neurologist who programmed her device off. The physician indicated that pain resolved once the device was programmed off. X-rays were taken and sent to the mfr for review and no obvious causes for the pain could be identified. The pt underwent a full revision due to the pain in which the lead was replaced due to a lead fracture and the generator was replaced prophylactically. The lead and generator has been returned to the mfr and product analysis is currently in process. Good faith attempts to obtain additional info are currently being made.

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.
