Houston Product Liability Lawyers Serving Clients Nationwide

On January 22nd, 2018 there was a Class I recall by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for Medtronic’s Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT-D) and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD). It should be noted that Class I recalls are a rare thing and that when a Class I recall does happen the FDA implements a specialized strategy to best combat the situation. The goal here is to remove the product from all commercial stores and to ensure that all who are using the product are safe. This includes removing the product from people’s possession completely or replacing it with a non-defective model. These are important facts to consider if you or someone you know has one of these Medtronic products, they should be informed immediately if they haven’t already.

While there is an admitted error with the product being recalled, receiving compensation is not always as easy as you might think. If you or a loved one are affected by the 2018 Medtronic recall it is important that you contact our Medtronic recall attorneys at Webster Vicknair MacLeod today.

The function of the CRT-D & ICD is to either send a small electrical shock to anyone’s heart that is beginning to beat dangerously slow or regulate a heart rate that is becoming dangerously fast. This malfunction is due to an issue in the mixing of the gas within the product that allows an electrical charge to affect the heart in order to increase heart rate, or apply the necessary therapy to reduce a high heart rate. While the product might not immediately fail there is an extremely high risk that at any moment the product will become ineffective.

The following is a list of the affected CRT-D devices by product:

  • Compia
  • Claria
  • Amplia
  • Vivia

The following is a list of the affected CRT-D devices by product:
