    Medtronic Sales representative hand delivered an Important Patient Safety Information letter, dated May 2009, to physicians beginning 05/18/09. The letter describes the issues, provides a predicted failure rate for the 3 populations of devices, and provides Patient Management Recommendations. The letter recommended that physicians should advise their patients to seek medical attention immediately if they experience symptoms (e.g., fainting or lightheadedness). It was also recommended that physicians should consider device replacement for patients who are both pacemaker dependent and who have been implanted with a device in the affected subsets. Medtronic will offer supplemental device warranty if the device is not already at elective replacement time. The last recommendation was that physicians should continue routine follow up in accordance with standard practice for those patients who are not pacemaker dependent. The letter also provides Physician and Patient Support. Letters will be mailed to patients with registered devices beginning 05/27/09. Questions should be directed to a local Medtronic Representative or Medtronic Technical Services at 800-505-4636.
