Abstract

Objectives: Vagal nerve stimulator is an effective treatment option for the medical treatment of the resistant-epilepsies. Surgical complication risks, as well as device-dependent risks, are also present. In this study, we aimed to draw attention to lead fractures from device-dependent complications.
