RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Recalling Firm: Guidant Corporation, Saint Paul, MN, by letter, dated October 9, 2006.
Manufacturer: Guidant-Ireland, Clomel, County Tipperary, Ireland. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Shock Effectiveness: there is a potential for malfunction of a high voltage wire, which could compromise effectiveness of shock therapy. While no energy is lost, defibrillation thresholds may be higher (and safety margin may be reduced) because the shocking vector has changed.
