Developed and marketed by the global, medical device company, St. Jude Medical, Inc., the St. Jude Eon & Eon Implantable Pulse Generator (IPG) Neurostimulator is used as an alternative to drug analgesics to relieve certain types of neurological pain. The battery powered device is surgically implanted adjacent to a patient’s spine where it transmits an electrical charge to a specific region of the brain that produces the body’s own pain killers known as endorphins.
The implanted device’s batteries must be recharged every 24 hours, and according to St. Jude Medical, the IPG Neurostimulator’s batteries are responsible for the hundreds of patient complaints related to moderate to severe side effect injuries that had eventually led to an FDA recall of certain models of the device in October, 2011.
According to St. Jude, an unknown number of the implant’s batteries have defective welds that have caused patients to suffer from spontaneous and painful jolts of electric shock, chronic lower back pain, loss of the device’s communication with the brain (failure to relieve pain), sudden overheating that has resulted in minor to very serious first and second degree burns, as well as revisionist surgery required to remove and replace a defective device. Due to these serious side effect injuries, numerous lawsuits against St. Jude Medical allege that the company negligently failed in its duty to adequately manufacture and test its neurotransmitter prior to its release to the general public.
