  • Causa
    Boston scientific corporation has stopped shipment and is retrieving unimplanted devices from us hospital shelves of all its implantable cardioverter defibrillators (icds) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (crt-ds) after determining that some manufacturing process changes were not submitted for approval to the us food & drug administration.
  • Acción
    BSC issues press release dated 15 March 2010. FDA press release posted 18 March 2010. On 15 March 2010, BSC Sales Representatives begin removal of devices from health care facilities stock. Starting 22 March 2010 BSC sent a physician letter dated 22 March 2010 to implanting and following physicians via FedEx. The Urgent Medical Device Recall letter described the issue of why devices were being removed from hospital shelves. The letter did NOT recommend any changes to normal follow-up procedures for patients implanted with an ICD or CRT-D device. The letter included ALL potential US models. To be complete and mitigate the possibility of retrieval errors, the ICD and CRT-D US models that may be on customer's shelves were included in the letter. The devices subject to retrieval, however, were those non-implanted devices with domestic customers. For questions, please contact the local representative (1-800-227-3422) for pick up and return or contact Boston Scientific Technical Services at 1.800.CARDIAC (227.3422).

  • Descripción del producto
    VENTAK PRIZM Automatic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (AICD). DR, model 1851, DR HE, model 1853 and 1858, PRIZM VR HE, model 1857, PRIZM 2 VR model 1860 and PRIZM 2 DR model 1861. The ICDs are designed to detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (VT) and ventricular fibrillation (VF) and provide bradycardia therapy (atrial and ventricular pacing). Therapies include both low- and high-energy shocks using either a biphasic or monophasic waveform. Bradycardia pacing, including adaptive-rate features is available to detect and treat bradyarrhythmias and to support the cardiac rhythm after defibrillation therapy. The devices denoted with DR offer dual-chamber bradycardia features (atrial and/or ventricular pacing and sensing), and the devices denoted with VR offer single-chamber bradycardia features (ventricular pacing and sensing). Sterilized with gaseous ethylene oxide. Guidant Corporation, Cardiac Rhythm Management, 4100 Hamline Avenue North, St. Paul, MN 55112-5798 USA
