Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Defibrillators
Medtronic defibrillator leads have been recalled after the company identified at least five patient deaths in which a Medtronic Sprint Fidelis lead fractured and was a likely contributing factor to the death. The recalled Medtronic defibrillator leads are the Sprint Fidelis Models: 6930, 6931, 6948, and 6949.
People with defibrillators should check the patient implant card that they received after their implant surgery to determine if they received one of the recalled leads. Patients should contact their physician if there is any uncertainty about being implanted with one of the recalled leads.
Patients who have had the Sprint Fidelis lead implanted should contact their physician, especially if they have experienced multiple shocks, lightheadedness, fainting, or palpitations.
