What are the side effects of Guidant Implanted Defibrillators?FREE Case Review
Due to the failure of Guidant to notify doctors and patients who use their Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators of potentially catastrophic failures in design and programming, many people who trusted these devices must now live in constant terror that they will fail when they need them the most. There have already been 45 errors and 2 deaths linked to these ICDs, and when these devices fail they cannot prevent serious conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, and even sudden cardiac death.
ICDs are supposed to counteract these situations by monitoring heart rate and providing electrical stimulation at appropriate times. Unfortunately, some of the most popular brands of ICDs manufactured by Guidant Corp. were recalled due to serious malfunctions. Anyone with a VENTAK PRIZM 2 DR, CONTAK RENEWAL, CONTAK RENEWAL 2, VENTAK PRIZM AVT, VITALITY AVT, RENEWAL 3 AVT and RENEWAL 4 AVT ICDs should contact their doctor immediately, for they are at serious risk.
