Model Number 302-20
Event Date 01/27/2015
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

Additional information was received via an implant card that the patient underwent a generator and lead replacement surgery on (b)(6) 2015 due to prophylactic generator replacement and high lead impedance. The neurologist reported that he does not know what may have cause the high impedance as no trauma or manipulation had occurred. The high impedance was confirmed on system diagnostics prior to the surgery. The explanting facility will not return explanted devices to the manufacturer for analysis; therefore, no analysis can be performed.

Event Description

Clinic notes were received indicating that the vns patient¿s device showed high impedance on (b)(6) 2015. The patient was referred for surgery but no known surgical interventions have occurred to date.

Manufacturer Narrative

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