Beware Guidant Pacemaker Device Malfunction

Comments Off

The FDA and Guidant has notified the public that a subset of implantable pacemakers, cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators [ICDs] is associated with five reports of device malfunction due to the failure of a low-voltage capacitor from a single component supplier.

Patients with a bad pacemaker may experience premature battery depletion and are urged to visit their physcian for an examination.
