Event Description

It was reported that the patient underwent lead replacement due to high impedance (10,000 ohms). It was reported that x-rays did not show a lead fracture or any abnormalities. It was reported that the patient experienced a good clinical response with vns. Pre-operative diagnostics identified that the generator had not yet been programmed off. The device was programmed off prior to the patient going to the operating room. It was reported that the surgeon decided to implant the new lead on the patient's right vagus nerve. The lead was cut at the connector pin and the explanted portion was returned to manufacturer for analysis. Analysis is underway, but has not been completed to date.
