Responsible Entity St Jude Medical Australia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue The indication for St. Jude Medical’s (SJM) occipital nerve stimulation (ONS) therapy for the treatment of intractable chronic migraine is being removed from the product instructions for use. The post market clinical follow up data was not appropriate to demonstrate that the benefit of the therapy outweighs the risk at this time. St. Jude Medical has advised doctors not to use the Eon, Eon C, Eon Mini and Prodigy SCS devices and associated programmers, as well as the Octrode and Quattrode leads, for the purpose of occipital nerve stimulation. Please note that these products are still available for use as an aid in the management of chronic, intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs.
Recall Action Hazard Alert
Recall Action Instructions St. Jude Medical has undertaken this action not following the Uniform Recall Procedure for Therapeutic Goods (URPTG) since they have classified this as a product notification.

The TGA has classified this change as a hazard alert to inform consumers and health professionals of the changed advice relating to St Jude Medical’s occipital nerve stimulation devices and the latest data relating to their use.

Regarding patients who have already been treated for ONS therapy, St Jude Medical is not recommending a change in the way currently implanted patients are followed up.
