Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Leads may have been compromised during the manufacturing process, with cuts in the insulation layer of the SVC shock coil.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Process control
Action An Important Medical Device Advisory letter was sent to doctors on 11/3/15 to inform them of the recall by St. Jude Medical. The letter informs the doctors that St. Jude Medical identified that during the manufacturing process of a limited number of Optisure leads, a trim technique to remove excess medical adhesive around the SVC shock coil may have introduced damage to the leads insulation. The letter provides the doctors with the recommendations for patients with a potentially impacted Optisure lead connected to a device with Dynamic TX technology and for patients implanted with a potentially impacted Optisure lead connected to a device without DynamicTx technology. Doctors with questions about the advisory are instructed to contact their local Sales Representative or St. Jude Medical Technical Services at (800) 722-3774.
