RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Recalling Firm: Medtronic, Inc., Rhythm Management, Minneapolis, MN, by press release, FDA Statement and letter dated October 15, 2007.
Manufacturer: Medtronic Puerto Rico, Inc., Villalba Pr, PR. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Medtronic Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management has voluntarily suspended worldwide distribution of the Sprint Fidelis family of defibrillation leads because of the potential for lead fractures. In addition, the company recommends against new implants of the leads (Sprint Fidelis Models: 6930, 6931, 6948, 6949). Medtronic, its Independent Physician Quality Panel, and the President of the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), do not recommend that patients seek prophylactic replacement of Sprint Fidelis leads, as the risks of removal or insertion of another lead exceed the small risk to patients of a lead fracture. Medtronic has provided patient management recommendations that should reduce risks in the affected population and recommends that patients with questions consult their physicians. Information is also available for patients and physicians at www.medtronic.com/fidelis. This decision is based on a variety of factors that, when viewed together, indicate that suspending distribution is the appropriate action. Lead fractures may present clinically as audible alerts, inappropriate shocks and/or loss of output.

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Stryker Howmedica Osteonics Corp., Mahwah, NJ, by letters on August 30, 2007. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Stryker Orthopaedics had identified that specific lots of Trident PSL Acetabular shells may have a dimensional discrepancy. The deviation regarding the difference in wall thickness will increase the gap between the shell and liner on one side and will decrease the gap between shell and liner on the opposing side, resulting in interference.

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Recalling Firm: Medtronic, Inc., Rhythm Management, Minneapolis, MN, by press release, FDA Statement and letter dated October 15, 2007.
Manufacturer: Medtronic Puerto Rico, Inc., Villalba Pr, PR. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Medtronic Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management has voluntarily suspended worldwide distribution of the Sprint Fidelis family of defibrillation leads because of the potential for lead fractures. In addition, the company recommends against new implants of the leads (Sprint Fidelis Models: 6930, 6931, 6948, 6949). Medtronic, its Independent Physician Quality Panel, and Bruce Lindsay, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology, Washington University School of Medicine and the President of the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), do not recommend that patients seek prophylactic replacement of Sprint Fidelis leads, as the risks of removal or insertion of another lead exceed the small risk to patients of a lead fracture. Medtronic has provided patient management recommendations that should reduce risks in the affected population and recommends that patients with questions consult their physicians. Information is also available for patients and physicians at www.medtronic.com/fidelis. This decision is based on a variety of factors that, when viewed together, indicate that suspending distribution is the appropriate action. Lead fractures may present clinically as audible alerts, inappropriate shocks and/or loss of output.
