A recall issued by Guidant Corporation on July 19, 2005 acknowledged that up to 18,000 pacemakers manufactured between 1997 and 2000 may have a potentially defective moisture seal that can lead to malfunction of the device. The popular line of Meridian pacemakers was included in this group, of which there have already been 69 reports of failure including one possible fatality, although that link has not yet been firmly established. These are the Meridian models that have been affected:

  • Guidant Meridian 0476
  • Guidant Meridian 0976
  • Guidant Meridian 1176
  • Guidant Meridian 1276

Patients who have weak or injured hearts rely on pacemakers to insure that there is sufficient circulation to provide blood for their bodies. Without proper circulation people may experience fainting, light-headedness, shortness of breath, and irregular heart beat, all of which are potential signs of pacemaker failure. Anyone with a Meridian pacemaker should report any of these symptoms to their doctor immediately. Quick action may save your life.

Once you have secured your safety, it would be wise to contact an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. Corporations must be held accountable for the devices they produce, and should these instruments fail to protect your health due to a manufacturing defect, they must take responsibility for their actions.
