The Medtronic Lawsuit Claim and Evaluation Site is designed to provide information and assistance to Medtronic lead replacement patients.

PR9.NET March 05, 2008 - New York – The Medtronic defibrillator lead recall lawyers at Johnson Law Firm announced today the launch of their Medtronic Lead Recall Information and Claims Filing Center as a resource for patients and personal injury attorneys around the USA. Patients affected by the recent Medtronic recall of heart leads can visit the site to receive Medtronic Lawsuit information and claims evaluations.

The Medtronic Lawsuit Claim and Evaluation Site is designed to provide information and assistance to Medtronic lead replacement patients who have questions about possible individual Medtronic lawsuits and Medtronic class action lawsuits on behalf of patients affected by the Medtronic recall of the Sprint Fidelis defibrillator heart leads.

"Adequate testing of the Medtronic lead before its introduction into the market would have revealed the health risks with the device and saved many of these patients from additional anxieties, and possibly death," says a lawyer of Johnson Law Firm.

Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Lead Recall is very serious for patients implanted with the device who have heart rhythm abnormalities and rely on it as a life saving product. Sprint Fidelis Leads are specific models of cardiac electrodes (thin wires) connecting an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) directly to the heart. ICDs and CRT-Ds are meant to protect patients from life threatening heart rhythms. Recently Medtronic sprint fidelis leads have been recalled because of the potential for lead fractures. These leads are prone to fracture. This could cause the defibrillator to deliver unnecessary shock or to stop functioning. Some deaths and other serious injuries have been reported in which a fracture in a Sprint Fidelis lead may have been a possible or likely contributing factor.
