CYBERONICS INC LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 01/27/2015
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was reported that during prophylactic generator replacement surgery on (b)(6) 2015, the vns patient¿s replacement generator was tested with the existing lead and system diagnostic results revealed high impedance (impedance value ¿ 5964 ohms). The lead pin was reinserted into the generator header multiple times but the high impedance condition did not resolve (impedance value ¿ 6683 and 7091 ohms). Generator diagnostics for the replacement generator showed normal device function. The old generator was tested with the existing lead and system diagnostics showed high impedance (dcdc ¿ 7). Preoperative diagnostic results with the old generator showed lead impedance within normal limits (dcdc ¿ 1). The lead was also replaced during the procedure. The explanting facility will not return explanted devices to the manufacturer for analysis; therefore, no analysis can be performed.

Manufacturer Narrative

Device failure is suspected, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.
