Millions of people are affected by heart problems every year. Medtronic, the nation's largest manufacturer of heart implant devices has stopped selling its implantable Medtronic defibrillator because of a defect that causes a risk of electrical shock and potential death. This defect was first reported in the New York Times on October 15, 2007
The Times reported that a defect in the electrical lead, called the Sprint Fidelis® has resulted in hundreds of malfunctions and potentially played a part in the deaths of five people implanted with Medtronic defibrillators. Medtronic reports that the Sprint Fidelis® lead that connects the defibrillator directly to the heart can fracture and cause a severe electric shock.
The Sprint Fidelis® leads have been used in Medtronic defibrillators since 2004. Medtronic estimates that as many as 268,000 implanted Medtronic defibrillators are equipped with the faulty leads. The company estimates that as many as 5,000 people will experience problems with Medtronic defibrillators in the next 30 months. Medtronic warned doctors to stop using Sprint Fidelis® leads in patients implanted with Medtronic defibrillators. Medtronic also announced that it will recall all Sprint Fidelis® leads not already in use.
