CYBERONICS INC LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-30
Event Date 03/06/2012
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was reported that device diagnostics resulted in a high impedance reading. The patient was sent for x-rays and the radiologist's report indicates that the lead pins did not appear to be fully inserted into the generator header. The device was programmed off per manufacturer's recommendations. It was reported that the patient's family has declined surgical intervention because they feel the patient has not received much benefit from vns therapy. Review of the device programming history identified that the patient had high impedance at implant which was resolved on the day of implant. The high impedance was later found on diagnostics on (b)(6) 2012.

Manufacturer Narrative

Device manufacturing records were reviewed. Analysis of programming history. Review of manufacturing records of the lead confirmed all quality tests were passed prior to distribution. Device failure is suspected, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.
