Class 1 Recall Issued for Boston Scientific S-ICD Lead

Patients with a Boston Scientific S-ICD should be aware of a Class I recall of the 3501 Emblem subcutaneous electrode.  This model was manufactured from March 2016 through November 2020.
 
 
This same issue was the subject of a product advisory issued in December of 2020, but due to 26 serious injuries and one death associated with the device, the advisory was upgraded to a recall.   
 
 
Boston Scientific has a product lookup tool (www.BostonScientific.com/lookup) where you can look up your device and see if your specific lead is affected.  You can find your serial numbers on your registration card.
