Event Date 01/01/2010
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was initially reported by the pt that her depression was worse than before she got vns. The pt indicated that she was seen shortly after her implant and hasn't seen any psychiatrist or other physician since (b)(6) 2009. Her prescribing physician confirmed that the pt was seen shortly after implant ((b)(6) 2009) and had not returned since. The pt was believed to be continuing to have depression, not necessarily an increase in depression. There were no details available about her device settings or diagnostics. The pt was noted to have been 5 yrs with no lab work and was last prescribed some medications for her depression. The pt also has missed her last two appointments. No further details were known at this time since the pt has yet to follow up with them on her depression. A search performed in the mfr's programming history database showed last diagnostics to be within normal limits.
