CYBERONICS INC LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 08/16/2013
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was reported that the patient was seen on (b)(6) 2013 and high lead impedance was observed. The physician programmed the patient's device off to 0ma output current. The patient was referred to the surgeon for evaluation and x-rays were ordered, but will likely not be sent to the manufacturer. The physician does not believe that trauma or manipulation contributed to the event. Revision surgery was completed on (b)(6) 2013. Review of the lead device history records confirmed all quality tests were passed prior to distribution. It was noted that the patient previously experienced high impedance after implant in (b)(6) 2010 due to the electrode not being adequately seated on the nerve (reported in mfr #: 1644487-2010-02723). The explanted generator and lead were returned on (b)(6) 2013 and are pending product analysis.

Manufacturer Narrative

Device manufacturing records and programming history were reviewed. Review of manufacturing records confirmed the device met all final testing specifications prior to distribution. Device failure is suspected, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.
