Model Number 304-20
Event Date 11/06/2014
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

The explanted product was received by the manufacturer for analysis.

Event Description

Analysis was completed on the explanted products. The condition of the returned lead portions is consistent with conditions that typically exist following an explant procedure. No obvious anomalies were noted. Continuity checks of the returned lead portions were performed, during the visual analysis, with no discontinuities identified. Based on the findings in the product analysis lab, there is no evidence to suggest an anomaly with the returned portions of the device which may have contributed to the stated complaint. There were no performance or any other type of adverse conditions found with the pulse generator.

Event Description

It was later reported that the patient¿s lead was extruding after the incision opened on (b)(6) 2015. The patient was seen in the emergency room and evaluation by the surgeon confirmed that the vns explant was warranted. The hospital reported that the generator and lead were explanted on (b)(6) 2015 due to infection.

Event Description

It was reported that the patient's caregiver noticed an internal infection about two weeks prior at the neck incision site. The patient had implant surgery on (b)(6) 2014. The infection was reported to have developed to be external with scabbing on the left side of the incision. The infection was not mentioned or visible at post-operative follow-up, as the company clinical specialist was present during most of the patient¿s appointments. No interventions for the infection have been reported to date.

Manufacturer Narrative

Device manufacturing records were reviewed. Review of manufacturing records confirmed sterilization for both the generator and lead prior to distribution.
