Patients using any of the Contak Renewal 3, Contak Renewal 4, Renewal 3, Renewal 4 AVT and Renewal RF devices that were recalled are advised to contact their physicians immediately and go to the emergency room if they hear tones emanating from the devices. The devices are subject to component failure that may limit available therapy. Guidant has provided physicians with a new recommendation for preventing the component part from malfunctioning, after finding that its earlier recommendation to switch the “Enable Magnet Use” function to OFF was inadequate. A Guidant lawyer, or Guidant attorney, understands the recall process, and how this impacts your claim.

If you or a family member use a Guidant heart defibrillator, it is important that you consult with your doctor to find out which model you use, and whether a replacement would be appropriate for you.
