Medtronic has recalled a small number of ICDs and CRT-D devices. A total of 48 devices implanted in patients may contain a manufacturing defect which would prevent the device from delivering an appropriate shock if needed.
This is a Class I recall, which is the most serious as determined by the FDA.
Physicians of record of those affected by the recall should have already been notified by Medtronic.
