Medtronic lead fractures have been reported in several cases. The defective leads can cause inappropriate shocks or malfunction which can cause patients to die. These reports led to the Medtronic lead recall. The defibrillator leads are electrical wires that connect the hearts of patients to the defibrillators implanted in their chests. The Medtronic defibrillator lead recall may affect patients with defibrillators implanted since September 2004. The FDA has advised such patients to check their patient ID cards to ascertain that they have received a Medtronic lead containing any of the following 4 sets of numbers: 6930, 6931, 6948 and 6949 and contact their physicians immediately if they experience multiple shocks, lightheadedness, fainting or palpitations.
