Manufacturer Narrative
Device evaluation: analysis of the implantable neurostimulator (ins) found the ins was functionally okay with insignificant anomalies. If information is provided in the future, a supplemental report will be issued.
 
Event Description
Additional information received from the patient¿s legal counsel on 2017-jul-19 noted the patient¿s ins had ¿malfunctioned after he was injured in the wreck¿ and was replaced on(b)(6)2017 as a result. It was also reported that the patient was ¿told that several of the leads were broken. ¿ it was noted that while the patient¿s device was very beneficial and significantly decreased his pain originally, the patient¿s pain had ¿increased greatly¿ following their car accident. The patient¿s pain was once again decreased following the replacement of the ins.

Manufacturer Narrative
The implantable neurostimulator (ins) passed functional testing. The ins passed the final functional test on the automated test console. A lab functional test determined there was good stable output on the electrode pairs the ins had when it was received. A lab functional test determined there was good stable output on all electrode pairs. Analysis determined there were no issues when pressing on the ins can. Analysis determined the telemetry was acceptable. Concomitant medical products: product id: 377845, lot# v009204, implanted: (b)(6) 2006, explanted: (b)(6) 2017, product type: lead.

Event Description
Additional information was received from the patient. It was reported that the car accident had caused the leads to get pulled from the ins. The patient reiterated that after the accident, they were shocked when they turned the stimulation on. No further complications are anticipated.
 
Event Description
A patient reported they were in a car accident yesterday; they were rear-ended. The patient was very confused because he was not feeling stimulation in the upper part of his back where he usually feels it. The patient was still feeling stimulation in his hips and legs where he normally feels it. The patient stated that he was shaken up from the accident and he was not thinking straight and he wasnt feeling well. The patient was redirected to his healthcare provider. The indication for implant was lumbar radiculopathy and spinal pain.
 
Event Description
Additional information was received from a manufacturer representative on (b)(6) 2016. The patient reported a change of stimulation and requested to be reprogrammed. They patient could no longer feel stimulation in their back. There had been a motor vehicle accident last week. Impedances showed that the several electrodes >10,000 ohms. The out of range impedances were found on electrode 0, 1, 12, 13, 14, and 15 with the reference of electrode 2 and on all electrodes when using electrode 0 as a reference. Programming was attempted. The patient had adequate coverage in the left side of their lower back and both legs. The complaint was not being able to feel stimulation in their lower back and that the patient had been able to feel it there prior to the motor vehicle accident. The issue had not been resolved at the time of this report.
 
Event Description
Additional information was received from manufacturer representative. It was reported that an impedance check and reprogramming had been performed.

Event Description
Additional information was received from a consumer via a manufacturer representative (rep). It was reported that the patient was seen in (b)(6) 2016 for reprogramming due to the stimulation no longer in the correct area after the motor vehicle accident in (b)(6) 2016. The inappropriate stimulation was reported to the physician for a lead revision. The physician instructed the patient to request an evaluation appointment with a previous pain clinic physician who implanted the manufacturer¿s devices. Steps to refer the patient to the physician were not taken and the patient was told that medicare wouldn¿t pay for a revision. The rep was contacted by the patient¿s legal counsel who requested the rep¿s assistance in getting a referral from the physician for a revision. The legal counsel was referred to the manufacturer¿s legal department. The issue was not resolved as of (b)(6) 2017. No surgical intervention occurred or was planned. The patient was alive with no injury.

Event Description
Additional information was received from the manufacturing representative reporting that the patient was schedule for a lead revision yesterday ((b)(6) 2017). It was reported that they met with the patient pre-operatively and ran impedance checks on all 16 electrodes and found that they were all out of range. The report was included with their follow-up information. It was reported that in the operating room, they disconnected the ins and the physician observed evidence of what they thought were ¿burn marks¿ between the electrodes that plugged into the ins header. The electrodes were tested from the patient¿s two extensions and those still showed out of range impedances on multiple contacts. It was reported that they decided to explant the indwelling octad leads and extensions and implant a new system. It was reported that this was successful and post-operative programming/interrogation revealed great paresthesia coverage and normal impedances. It was reported that the patient¿s explanted product was going to be sent back for analysis.

Analysis of the lead v009204 found that the conductors on the lead body were broken at the titan anchor site. Conductors 0 and 1 were broken at 21. 5 centimeters from the distal end. It was also found that at the proximal end of the lead body around all the connectors there was degraded insulation consistent with metal ion oxidation (mio). Functional test results circuit #0: open circuit #1: open circuit #2:5. 7 ohms circuit #3: 4. 1 ohms circuit #4: 4. 3 ohms circuit #5: 5. 4 ohms circuit # 6: 4. 1 ohms circuit #7: 4. 8 ohms there were no shorts between the circuits. Analysis of lead v009203 found that there was no significant anomaly and/or the device was damaged during explant. It was found that the stimulator lead body was cut through and the product was segmented. Analysis of extension njb004821n found that the outer insulation on the stimulator extension body had melted. It was found that there was setscrew impression on the insulation between connector 0 and 1. The degraded insulation was consistent with mio around all of the connectors. Analysis found that there was no significant anomaly and/or the device was damaged during explant. Analysis of extension njb000746v found that the outer insulation on the stimulator extension body had melted. It was found that the setscrew impression was too proximal. The degraded insulation was consistent with mio around all the connectors. Ananlysis found that there was no significant anomaly and/or the device was damaged during explant. H6.
