Our Product Liability Attorneys Are Experts in Defective Drugs
On June 17, 2005, Guidant Corp. announced a massive recall of its implanted cardiac defibrillator. To date, there have been reports of hundreds of Guidant Defibrillator failures, causing at least seven deaths. Guidant has admitted that even with all of the reports of complications, they were still selling older units out of their inventory.
Implantable defibrillators are intended to sense an irregular heart rhythm and shock the heart back into correct beating. Damage to the device circuits may be to blame for the inability of the device to deliver the required shock when a patient needs it. The defect described above causes the defibrillator to short circuit and malfunction resulting in serious injury and possibly death. People who have a Guidant pace maker should contact a Guidant attorney at the law firm of Lipsig, Shapey, Manus & Moverman to discuss available options.
