FDA WARNS: RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY FROM RIATA DEFIBRILLATION LEADS
What you as a St. Jude Medical pacemaker/Riata defibrillation leads recall-affected wearer can do to help protect yourself, family
If you are one of the estimated 80,000 heart patients implanted with a St. Jude Medical pacemaker equipped with Riata defibrillation leads, you by now know that you may be at risk of death or serious injury because something is potentially wrong with those Riata defibrillation leads.
You – and those who love you – were no doubt horrified to learn of the grave danger you may be in as a result of the Riata defibrillation leads failure problem recently accounced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which considered the threat you face to be serious enough to have declared a nationwide Riata defibrillation leads recall.
Three heart patients just like you have already been killed because of Riata defibrillation leads failure, according to published reports.
You perhaps first heard it from worried family or friends that your life may be endangered by the Riata defibrillation leads defect. Or possibly you found out about the broken Riata defibrillation leads failure risk from news reports announcing the FDA's Riata defibrillation leads recall (read the St. Jude Medical Riata defibrillation leads recall letter, courtesy of the FDA.).
Regardless of how you learned about the risk of death and serious injury posed by faulty Riata defibrillation leads, Weitz & Luxenberg wants to hear from you.
