Medtronic Defibrillators

Recover And Rebuild After A Defective Medtronic Defibrillator

Implantable defibrillators can be lifesaving devices. They monitor the heart rhythms of patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest and, when they detect an abnormal heartbeat, deliver an electrical shock to restore normal rhythm.

They are technological marvels – and patients depend on them. But, in October 2007, a major, life-threatening complication was announced by Medtronic, Inc., which manufactures the leads – thin insulated wires – that carry electrical impulses from the device to the heart. The leads, which had already been implanted in more than 200,000 patients, were susceptible to fractures, which could result in unnecessary shocks – or a failure to shock the heart at all.

After reports of at least five patient deaths associated with malfunctioning leads, Medtronic issued a recall of the product. It's a serious defect in a product that is, perhaps, the most important device a patient will ever rely on.

Harrison Davis Steakley Morrison Jones, P.C., a Waco, Texas, law firm with a national reputation, is currently representing plaintiffs in Medtronic litigation. If you represent, or know someone who has been implanted with Medtronic leads, we can work with you to help.
