Our firm is investigating claims and numerous adverse event reports made to the FDA arising from failures of the Sprint Fidelis Implantable Cardiac Lead, a medical device manufactured by Medtronic, Inc., and its subsidiary, Medtronic Puerto Rico, Inc, These devices are the wires that connect implantable cardiac defibrillators and resynchronization devices to the heart. The Sprint Fidelis Lead may have been used to connect devices manufactured by other companies such as Guidant, Boston Scientific, and St. Jude, as well as Medtronic's own devices. If you have been advised that your ICD lead must be replaced check your device identification card to determine if it is a Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Lead. If so, you may contact us at no charge to discuss your situation.

A Lead is part of a implantable heart defibrillation system that has three main parts: the defibrillator, leads, and a programmer. Two parts of this system are placed inside the body.

The third part, the programmer, is kept in a hospital or clinic. A doctor or nurse uses this specialized computer to monitor and change the instructions of the implanted defibrillator.

If any part of the system fails to function as indicated, a patient is at great risk for serious injury. We have been contacted by individuals whose leads have failed prematurely, leading to replacement. We have also seen a recent rise in reports to the FDA of similar failures.
