Defibrillators can be life-saving products for patients with a heart rhythm abnormality. On October 15, 2007, Medtronic issued a "voluntary market suspension" to remove its line of Medtronic Sprint Fidelis defibrillation leads from the market. Medtronic stated that the leads are prone to fracturing which can lead to sudden and painful shocks at times and can deliver unnecessary electric jolt.
The FDA has advised patients who have had the Medtronic Sprint Fidelis lead implemented since Sept 2004 should contact their physicians, especially if they have multiple shocks, lightheadedness, fainting or palpitation.
