On October, 15, 2007, Medtronic Inc. announced it was recalling its
Sprint Fidelis leads from the worldwide market due to a risk of
fracture, which can potentially cause a defibrillator to either fail or
deliver unnecessary shocks.

The recall involves the following Medtronic defibrillation leads:

* Sprint Fidelis 6930

* Sprint Fidelis 6931

* Sprint Fidelis 6948

* Sprint Fidelis 6949

Most defibrillator and pacemaker patients have an identification card
that lists the model and serial numbers of their device and leads. If
your device identification card contains the numbers 6930, 6931, 6948
or 6949, it is likely you have a recalled lead. If you are unsure which
lead you have, you are encouraged to contact Mark & Associates, P.C. to
request a free evaluation.
