CYBERONICS, INC. LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 06/01/2010
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was initially reported that the pt was scheduled for a head scan (with head coil) mri and was in the scanner for 59 seconds. At the time, the pt's mother had not told scanning technicians about the pt's vns device; consequently, it was not disabled during this brief time period. Once the vns implant was discovered, the scan was stopped. The nurse performed a system diagnostics test, which showed high lead impedance. The pt was known to have her pulse generator placed in the abdominal cavity due to her comorbidities. The pt was disabled and the mri was continued. It was later indicated that the pt had a fall about two weeks prior to the mri, of which the mother was not initially forthcoming about. The pt apparently fell and hit her stomach area, which is the place where the pt has her generator placed due to the many shunts she has in place due to her disease. She indicated that she received a copy of the radiologist's reports and there was a note that there was a lead fracture in the neck area. The x-rays were requested to be sent to the manufacturer for review, but have yet to be received. There was a belief that the fall was the cause of the high impedance and not the mri. A search performed in the manufacturer's programming history database showed that the last known diagnostics were within normal limits. It is unk at this time if the pt will be having the device replaced.
