TorkLaw continues litigation against St. Jude Medical on behalf of victims and families who have been impacted by the defective Riata Leads.


Now representing more than 100 clients Nationwide, TorkLaw has started a Client Information Center related to the St. Jude Riata Recall providing important information for those who believe they may be impacted by the device.


Specifically, Series 1500 and 7000 Riata Leads have been identified as having premature insulation failure resulting from inside-out or outside-in abrasion.  In most lead failure situations, the wires inside the leads will protrude through the insulation and is often seen in an x-ray or flouroscopy.


The affected model numbers are the Riata (8F) Silicone Endocardial Defibrillation Leads (Models 1560, 1561, 1562, 1570, 1571, 1572, 1580, 1581, 1582, 1590, 1591, and 1592), and the Riata ST (7Fr) Silicone Endocardial Defibrillation Leads (Models 7000, 7001, 7002, 7010, 7011, 7040, 7041, and 7042).


Often times patients with the defective leads receive errant shocks, infections, migration or complete defibrillator failure.  If you or a love one have been implanted with a St. Jude Medical device, and are experiencing any problems, or believe that you might have the recalled device,  it is important that you immediately speak with your doctor or call us to help identify your device.
