Abbott Assurity and Endurity Implantable Pacemaker Recalls

FDA – A news report posted on cardiovascularbusiness.com states that the U.S. food and drug administration has announced the recall of more than 60,000 Abbott Assurity and Endurity implantable pacemakers. According to the FDA recall notice, the implantable pacemakers affected by the recall pose a risk of electrical shorts that could lead to significant complications or even death.

The FDA has classified the recall as a class one recall, which means the recalled Abbott Assurity and Endurity implantable pacemakers May cause serious injury or death. The FDA has received reports of 135 injuries related to the implantable pacemaker defect. However, no deaths have been reported at this time.

The recall notice states that the issue pertains to moisture buildup that may cause the Assurity or Endurity implantable pacemakers to Malfunction, causing the device to have battery issues, lose its pacing, create telemetry problems, and have other potential problems.

According to a statement from the FDA, “if the device is unable to deliver patient, the patient may experience slow or irregular heartbeat, fainting, shortness of breath, tiredness, dizziness, or discomfort. The FDA also stated that the device defect might shorten the life of the battery, and the medical device could lead to the pacemaker needing to be replaced sooner than expected. Another essential problem is the devices in the ability to relay accurate information via its telemetry system. This issue will make it difficult for medical providers to determine and provide proper treatment.

The Abbott Assurity and Endurity implantable pacemakers that have been affected by the recall were all distributed from April 29, 2015, two February 20, 2019. The news report states that Abbott has informed affected customers on March 2021. The report states that the notice claims that the medical device is not required to be replaced at this time if there is no “evidence of the issue. “Treating physicians are also urged to “remind patients of the importance of using remote monitoring. ”

I am very happy with the way Parker and Waichman is proceeding with my lawsuit. They clearly guided me through the process and answered all of my questions. One of the the things that I like the most about their administration is that they let you know right from the getgo, that before they making a decision, they need to study all possibilities of how to win the case, and that gave me the confidence assuring me that I made the right choice to hire Parker and Waichman. They have assigned Josephine Burgess to my case and I am impressed of how quickly she answer all my questions as well as helping me to promptly expedite my case, it is very ez to go through it with your help. Thank you Ms. Burgess because of your professionalism I understand that Parker and Waichman have an excellent team.
