Reason/Issue Medtronic recently identified an issue with a subset of Consulta® CRT-P devices during production. This issue was identified as a result of an internal investigation that indicated a recent trend of increasing manufacturing rejects related to the weld of a connector bracket. An out-of-specification weld could result in a loss of device hermeticity and compromised device functionality.
