  • Causa
    St jude medical (sjm) has identified that patients with nanostim leadless cardiac pacemakers may experience loss of telemetry and pacing due to battery malfunction. investigation by sjm found decreased battery capacity due to reduced electrolyte, resulting in high internal battery resistance. this disrupts the required capacity for proper device function and reduces device longevity. there have been seven (7) reports worldwide of lost telemetry and pacing output as a result of a battery malfunction. battery malfunction may be indicated with a loss of telemetry/communication with the implanted device and/or loss of pacing and magnet mode operation. these events occurred between 29 and 37 months post implant. no patient injuries have been reported in association with the loss of bradycardia pacing therapy.

  • Comentario del fabricante
    “We are in constant communication with regulatory agencies and competent authorities worldwide which allows us to implement global recalls or in-country communication quickly and effectively,” Abbott, which now owns St. Jude Medical told ICIJ in a statement. In addition to sending global notices to physicians worldwide, we also make sure that product advisories are available online and classification of product recalls and product advisories are determined by global regulatory bodies which can impact the timing in any given country. MD companies follow varying regulations in different countries. In come countries software is not regulated so a recall in one country related to software would not be classified as a recall or field action in another. In addition, review cycles within the regulatory process can be different in each country which can impact communication and recall timing.
