Model Number 302-20
Event Date 01/08/2013
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

During review of the in-house programming/diagnostic history database, it was observed that high impedance was observed at office visit on (b)(6) 2013. High impedance was again observed on (b)(6) 2013 and (b)(6) 2014. Further follow-up revealed that the patient was seen for increased seizures and high impedance. X-rays were taken and showed a lead fracture. It was reported that the patient underwent lead replacement and is now doing well. It was reported that possible trauma caused the lead fracture although this could not be guaranteed. The device was not disabled after observing the high impedance as the patient did not show discomfort.

Manufacturer Narrative
