Event Description

It was reported by a vns pt that she experienced sharp pain in her neck when turning her head along with headaches with pain over her right eye. Add'l info was received from a company rep indicating the pt's treating neurologist had in his notes from (b)(6) 2010 that high impedance was noted. Follow-up was made with the pt treating neurologist and nurse. The nurse indicated that the pt was taken to an mri and results were normal for the pain and headaches, hence she did not know what caused the pain and headaches. No x-rays were taken for the reported high lead impedance and it was unk if pt manipulation or trauma contributed to the reported high lead impedance. Current plans were to increase the pt's vimpat and follow-up in 3 months as the pt's battery is dead. Review of the manufacturer's programming history database was not indicative of high lead impedance although history was limited to (b)(4) 2005.
