St. Jude Pacemaker Recall Lawsuits

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recall of pacemakers manufactured by St. Jude Medical Inc. before May 2015. Pacemakers, or implantable defibrillators, are small cardiac devices that help patients maintain a normal heart rhythm. Pacemakers are powered by batteries and are supposed to give patients ample warning of battery failure. However, some pacemakers manufactured by St. Jude have been reported to short circuit, leaving patients with just hours to seek treatment or face life-threatening health complications.

PACEMAKER BATTERY FAILURE

Pacemakers manufactured by St. Jude Medical Inc. are supposed to provide three months’ warning of potential battery failure to patients. Unfortunately, nearly 400,000 St. Jude pacemakers may be affected by a faulty battery design that is prone to short-circuiting, which can cause total battery failure in as little as 24 hours. If a battery fails prematurely, the pacemaker cannot deliver pacing or shocks to the patient, which could put their life in danger.
