RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
St Jude Medical CRMD, Sylmar, CA, by letter on January 16, 2008 and press release on January 18, 2008. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
A condition that could lead to a ventricular sensing anomaly in Epic and Atlas family of implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs) has been identified. A loss of ventricular sensing would prevent the ICD from being able to detect an arrhythmia. If an arrhythmia occurred and the device was unable to detect it, then a patient would not receive potentially life saving therapy.

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Boston Scientific CRM Corporation, Saint Paul, MN, by letter dated January 4, 2008. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Repetitive mechanical stress applied to the titanium case can induce component damage and device malfunction in certain ICD and CRT-D devices implanted subpectorally with the serial number facing the ribs. Devices implanted subcutaneously or in a subpectoral position with the serial number facing away from the ribs are not included in this advisory. This update identifies additional VITALITY ICD models that are also subject to this failure mechanism if implanted in a susceptible orientation. Consequence includes: Loss of shock therapy, loss of pacing therapy (intermittent or permanent), or loss of telemetry communications.
