Lawsuits are being filed to address a potential safety threat created by a defect of the Eon or Eon Mini Implantable Pulse Generator from St. Jude Medical.
Among the nearly 35,000 individuals who were implanted with these devices, hundreds have reported experiencing a premature device failure, and some of them experienced painful burns at the site of the implant. This can force the patient into a painful, unwanted explant surgery that carries its own complications.
Because of this, numerous persons from around the country are in the midst of filing claims in association with this potentially serious product defect. The process is currently ongoing, and persons who believe they have claims are being encouraged to explore their legal options with a defective medical device lawyer.
