St Jude pulls Brio DBS device off the shelf after defect discovered

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

St Jude Medical has withdrawn from market its Brio deep brain stimulation device, designed to treat Parkinson's disease, for two to three months while it fixes a defect. The problem occurred after patients' bodily fluid entered the implanted device – this led to a decrease in electric current that could in turn affect therapy.
