CYBERONICS, INC. LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 06/23/2010
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

The pt recently had surgery for routine generator replacement, and during surgery, the surgeon cut the lead in error and therefore had to implant a new lead as well. The surgeon uses a single incision implant technique. The pt was seen by the neurologist for the first follow up appointment since surgery, and when the device was programmed on to "the lowest setting", the pt experienced intolerable coughing and painful stimulation in the neck and was not able to tolerate any stimulation. The surgeon was notified of the events, and it was noted by the surgeon that it is possible that based on these side effects, that the lead may be implanted on the wrong structure, possibly the phrenic nerve, rather than the vagus nerve. The pt is scheduled for surgery to have the lead replaced by a new surgeon, which is scheduled to occur on (b)(6)2010. Per the neurologist, diagnostic testing was performed which revealed normal device function; however, the specific results were not provided. In addition,the neurologist noted the device has been programmed off at this time.
