The recipient is reportedly experiencing increased power consumption, intermittent lock, and loss of sound. External equipment was exchanged and programming adjustments were made, however, the issue is not resolved. Device revision surgery is under consideration.

The recipient's device was explanted. The recipient was reimplanted with another advanced bionics cochlear device.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

The external visual inspection revealed the electrode was cut prior to receipt. This is believed to have occurred during revision surgery. The photographic imaging inspection confirmed cut electrode wires. This is believed to have occurred during revision surgery. System lock could not be obtained at any spacing. The no lock condition prevented several of the electrical tests from being performed. The device passed one of the electrical tests performed. The device failed the residual gas analysis test. The internal visual inspection noted silver migration across and between several electrical components. This device had moisture that exceeded the residual gas analysis test limit. The source of the problem was a feedthru hermeticity issue from one feedthru vendor. A capa was implemented. Feedthru assemblies from this vendor are no longer used. This is the final report.
