CYBERONICS - HOUSTON LEAD MODEL 302 Back to Search Results
Model Number 302-20
Device Problem Fracture
Event Date 04/23/2019
Event Type  Malfunction  
Event Description

Patient presented with high lead impedance upon interrogation. The battery was noted to be at ifi (intensified follow-up indicator). X-rays were received and reviewed for the patient. The generator was located in the patient¿s upper left chest. The connector pin can be seen coming through the second connector block. The filter feedthru were confirmed to be intact. The lead was observed in the patient¿s neck and appeared to be routed toward the patient¿s left chest. A strain relief bend, strain relief loop, and one tie-down were present. The lead wires appeared intact at the connector pins. No sharp gross discontinuities were identified in the visible portion of the lead. A sharp angle was observed in the main body of the lead. Based on the x-rays received, the cause for the high impedance could not be determined. The presence of a fracture or micro-fracture in the lead cannot be ruled out. It should be noted that due to the scale of the images and the limited images provided, the complete length of the lead from neck to generator could not be assessed as the image was not provided. No known surgical intervention has occurred to date. No other relevant information has been received to date.
