Limited Recall of Medtronic ICDs and CRT Devices

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.  

You can find a list of affected devices and serial numbers here.

You can also contact Medtronic Patient Services at 800-551-5544 (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm Central Time).
