Event Description

It was reported that the pt had full revision surgery due to a lead discontinuity. Prior to surgery, the pt had stated that he did not feel stimulation anymore. High impedance was also found on diagnostics. During surgery, the physician visualized a lead fracture just below the electrodes. The physician feels that the break may have been caused by the pt's constant head movement back and forth. Products have been returned to the manufacturer, but analysis is pending. Attempts for further information have been unsuccessful to date.
