CYBERONICS INC LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Event Date 03/03/2015
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

It was reported that the patient was referred for an end of service replacement that took place that day. The patient¿s generator prior to surgery was interrogated and showed ifi-yes. Diagnostics were also taken and resulted in a low impedance of <600 ohms. The patient was doing doing fine and has no increased seizures, so since the ifi=yes flag was seen they decided to replace before it actually gets to eos in case the seizures come back. Patient¿s programming history shows that the impedance has been dropping slowly since implantation suspecting a possible short circuit. The surgeon checked the lead and reported that he did not see anything obvious in terms of abrasions or fluid in lead at the area near the generator. He took out the old generator and replaced with a new generator. He performed the system diagnostics again and got high impedance at 9236 ohms. The surgeon re-inserted the pin and performed diagnostics which again showed a low impedance of <600 ohms. The surgeon performed two more diagnostic results which both showed low impedance but the surgeon decided to not revise the lead since he did not feel comfortable replacing it with just the diagnostic results. Patient was doing well prior to surgery so if there is an issue later on, he will bring them back into surgery. He informed the patient¿s family about his decision also. The explanted generator will not be returned for analysis.
