Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
A subset of Model 5388 Dual-Chamber External Temporary Pulse Generators worldwide may be unable to power up or may power down unexpectedly. The issue presents itself in one of two ways. First, during startup, and prior to initiating patient therapy, the instrument may power down in 1 - 2 seconds. Second, the instrument may power up correctly, but power down at a later time while in use.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Nonconforming Material/Component
Action Medtronic issued an Important Medical Device Correction letters, dated October 2010 and November 2010 to hospital's biomedical engineering department. The letter described the issue, how it presents, and stated that Medtronic will contact the hospitals to return affected product for servicing. The second letter reiterated that Medtronic would notify customers when FDA approves their design upgrade for returning devices for service. In the interim, hospitals should continue to use normally functioning devices. Cusotmers may contact Medtronic Instruments Technical Service at 800-638-1991 concerning this action.
