The Eon Mini Neurostimulator is a pulse generating implantable device that was designed to help manage pain in individuals that suffer from chronic pain.
In August and October 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the recall of the St. Jude Eon Mini Neurostimulator developed by St. Jude Medical, Inc. The recall was supported with an FDA-issued class II recall in 2012 that would be terminated by May 2014.
The St. Jude Eon Mini recall was announced after patients began complaining of serious medical complications. More than 34,000 patients had this device implanted, according to the FDA.
Have you or someone you love experienced pain, electrical shocks or needed revision surgery to remove the device? You may be entitled to file a St. Jude eon mini lawsuit. The class action lawyers at Gordon & Doner are currently investigating injury claims on behalf of patients who were the victim of these defective medical devices.
Problems with the St. Jude Medical Eon Implantable Pulse Generators
The Eon Mini Neurostimulator is one of several medical devices designed by St. Jude Medical and used to manage chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs. The device was implanted into the spinal area where it would transmit an electrical signal to the brain, which then caused the release of pain-killing endorphins.
Although the device was supposed to alleviate pain, many patients found that it was actually a source of pain. As of November 2011, St. Jude Medical had received more than 200 patient complaints of the Eon IPG and Eon Mini IPG overheating, causing a warm sensation at the implant site.
In July 2012, St. Jude found cracks in the weld of the device’s inner battery, which could result in failure of the device. Initially, the company claimed that moisture caused the weld cracking. Months later, the company claimed the cracks were due to supplies used in the battery manufacturing process. The company claimed they would thoroughly monitor its suppliers’ practices, but the damage was already done.
St. Jude Eon mini lawsuits were filed by victims who suffered injuries or who had to undergo additional surgery to remove the device.
Unfortunately the Eon Mini was approved by the FDA without requiring the company to submit clinical data.
