Above is a link to the FDA maude database. Which shows a Durata lead that failed. This is St. Jude's current tachy lead. This was only a 38 month from implant failure. As time goes on failures will increase.
Durata is the new lead that St. Jude is trying to say will not fail like Riata. Here is documentation that the new lead is also failing.
FDA as many in the industry are watching this very closely. Few more reports like this to FDA and who knows what will happen.
If you think you're so cool and manly because you can search for STJ MDRs in the MAUDE database, and pretend that BSX is bulletproof, you are out of your mind.
And to implicate an entire company based one 1 MDR in the MAUDE database is a HUGE stretch. BSX must be really desperate if they are teaching their sales reps to point to MDRs in the MAUDE database as sales fodder, since their own market share is ICDs is evaporating faster than the Aral Sea.
Do you really think that is the only report in the Maude database. There are others it is just an example. Do you understand the structure of Durata and Riata leads? How similiar in design they are? These are facts.
Why don't you go to St.Jude's website and look-up St. Jude's Class 1 recall letter on the Riata family of leads It's there. FDA has classified it as a recall class 1. Again facts
It is not my fault you can not read and choose to be so hateful and can not understand the statement (St.Jude CRM U.S. sales declined by 12 percent yoy)
I can not help you understand these things if you are so full of hate. Sorry if it upsets you.
