Event Description

It was reported that a patient had been experiencing pain around her generator site since her last generator replacement. The pain was noted to have increased in frequency and severity over the course of the 5 years, and it was stated that she recently began having severe sharp pain at the site that worsens when trying to lift heavier items. The physician had instructed her to not pick things up. The patient now feels pain all the time and also experiences tingling in her hands and feet and pain in her ears. She was unsure if the newer events are related to vns. The patient stated not having any sort of trauma to the site. The pain is constant and seemed to be related to the placement of the device. The physician was recommending the newer device with the tachycardia detection as he believed it would benefit her seizure control. The patient further reported that she was experiencing sharp pains with vns stimulation. It was stated that she had issues with pain in the past and had settings adjusted at her last appointment, however the pain had now returned. At the patient's follow up appointment, it was noted that the patient's device was showing high impedance as observed from two different programming systems. The patient did not report any trauma that may have led to damage of the lead. It was further stated that after the device was disabled for the high impedance, the patient's painful stimulation resolved. Clinic notes were received also indicating that the patient was having more seizures with vns. Battery status was noted to be ok. No surgery has occurred to date. No additional relevant information was received to date.
