Reason of Field Safety Corrective Action:
As background, Abbott believe that some of the listed leads may contain an electrode that does not conform to their material specification. In total, there have been four (4) reports from (2) centers describing that the most proximal stimulation tip electrode (electrode position 4) appeared lighter than the more distal electrodes when radiographed. There have been no reports of patient harm to date. Further communication with additional details about this action, inclusive of management recommendations for any patients that may have been implanted with an affected lead, will be forthcoming as soon as possible.
Your Abbott representative will assist you in removing these leads from your account and will facilitate replacing them. We are requesting your support on the removal and return of these leads. The Competent Authorities of the countries impacted by this FSCA have been notified of this activity.
Check the patient management recommendations in the attached letter.
