CYBERONICS INC LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 08/25/2006
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Reporter indicated that during a patient's vns generator replacement surgery due to end of service on (b)(6) 2006, it was noted by the surgeon that the lowest lead connection was off of the nerve, which was putting traction on the nerve. Releasing the tension moved the nerve back to a more normal position. The surgeon described the patient's tissue as "weakened", and that the tissues might be consistent with an underlying collagen vascular disorder. The patient's "tissue", specifically the fascia and collagenous tissues were described as weakened and lacking the usual texture that these tissues should demonstrate and it is suspected the patient has an underlying collagen vascular disorder. It is unclear if the possible collagen disorder caused the lead to migrate. No trauma occurred. The patient was also reported as experiencing neck pain at the time along with the lead migration.
