Today we were made aware of an email blast from the American Epilepsy Association regarding a Safety Notice for the LivaNova SENTIVA VNS Therapy device, model 1000.

 

This message has created a lot of concern within the Canadian epilepsy medical community. We understand the concern regarding this notification from the American Epilepsy Society on the subject of the Therapy devices.
