St. Jude Medical Eon & Eon Mini Recall
A spinal cord stimulator is used to manage chronic pain by sending pulsed electrical signals to the spinal cord.
In July of 2012, two St. Jude medical devices were recalled, the St. Jude Medical EON and EON Mini. The recall was due to a defective spinal cord stimulator battery in the system. The devices failed due to weld cracks located in the IPG’s inner battery casting, causing the battery to overheat and in some cases burn the patient.
Hundreds of reports have been made over the St. Jude Medical EON and EON Mini including; 214 reports of battery failure, 325 reports regarding overheating of the battery and out of the 325 reports received 72 patients had their devices removed.
Ron Bell Injury Lawyers believe in holding the manufacturer of the defective medical device liable to their negligence. If you or a loved one had a St. Jude Medical spinal cord stimulator, let our spinal cord stimulator attorneys help you.
