Event Description

The patient had previously underwent a generator explant surgery due to an infection which developed shortly after the generator was implanted. This infection is reported on mfr. Report #1644487-2018-02229. Additional information was received which reported the patient had also developed speech difficulties and trouble swallowing after the implant surgery. It was also reported that the patient¿s swallowing and speech became worse after the device was removed due to the infection. The patient was evaluated by an ent specialist who diagnosed the patient with vocal cord paralysis. The ent's evaluation of the patient determined that, per a laryngoscopy, the left vocal cord was frozen in the paramedian position. Additionally, the patient experienced dysphonia and dysphagia following the vns removal in addition to the diagnosed vocal cord paralysis. The ent was also concerned the patient was aspirating liquids and requested a swallow test. Furthermore, during the swallow test the patient aspirated a small amount of thick liquid. Per the ent's specialist, the vocal cord paralysis is likely associated with the removal surgery. No additional or relevant information has been received to date.
