Medtronic Lead Lawsuit
For many people, an implanted defibrillator is a life-saving device. They allow a patient with an abnormality in their heart rhythm to live a normal life without the constant threat of having a heart attack. However, in October of 2007, there was a Medtronic lead recall that affected literally hundreds of thousands of people. While this is distressing enough, the potential of suffering from a Medtronic lead fracture rather puts those who have one of these leads in a very difficult place.
