May 16, 2019- Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. is currently investigating Medtronic pacemaker implants and cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers (CRT-Ps) for premature battery depletion.
The Medtronic Pacemaker Fails Without Warning Patients
On May 7, 2019, the FDA issued a safety communication to alert health care providers and patients of issues that may cause batteries in certain Medtronic pacemaker implants or cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers (CRT-Ps) to drain more quickly than expected without warning patients or health care providers. The FDA further warns providers and patients to check for premature battery depletion in these pacemakers.
The FDA is currently aware of three medical device reports in which a Medtronic pacemaker or CRT-P battery had fully drained because of a crack in the device’s capacitor, without any warning to the patient or health care provider. As of April 10, 2019, 131,889 have been sold in the U.S.
