Medtronic recalls ICDs (implantable cardioverter defibrillators) following four deaths

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Medtronic has recalled two of its implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), following four deaths and a serious injury. It says the incidents may have been caused by problems with the capacitor technology used in its Micro Jewel II Model 7223Cx or GEM DR Model 7271 ICDs, meaning they sometimes fail to charge in time to deliver effective therapy. The recall is defined as Class I - meaning that there is "a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death".
