Event Description

A vns patient's mother called and reported that about a week ago around (b)(6) 2013 her child had a different seizure than ever before where he was confused during the seizure and she called ems but pt was not transported to the emergency room. Their seizures are still below baseline. The patient's last clinic visit prior to that date was (b)(6) 2013: clinic notes were received for review that reported. His seizures have been very well controlled with the vagus nerve stimulator which was implanted back in 2006, for almost one year, he did very well without recurrent seizures, but when he had l3-l4 laminectomy about 3 months ago, he had another seizure but since the last visit, he has been seizure fee. His vns was increased on his last visit. He's been tolerating the current dosage of medications which have not changed for a while. He did not have any significant side effects from the current settings of the vagus nerve stimulator. Good faith attempts are underway to determine the relationship of their change in seizure type to their vns device. Their device is not at end of battery life. The patient has been scheduled for a surgery consult for 6/25/2013. The outcome of the visit is pending. Unknown at this time if the patient will have their generator replaced.

On (b)(6) 2013 it was reported that the patient underwent prophylactic generator replacement that day. The explanted generator has not been returned for product analysis to date.

The explanting facility discarded the explanted device; therefore, no analysis can be performed.
