What is Happening with Boston Scientific EMBLEM S-ICD Subcutaneous Electrode?

The FDA has recently issued its most serious recall in connection with the Boston Scientific EMBLEM S-ICD Subcutaneous Electrode. The recall affects all devices distributed after June 2017. The FDA’s alert concerns the possibility of a fracture to the proximal sense ring. If the device breaks, the electrode would fail to provide defibrillation therapy to the patient, and thereby increase the possibility of a catastrophic cardiac event. There have been 26 reports of serious injury and one report of death linked to malfunctioning of the device.

The manufacturer issued a letter to affected customers in December 2020 to identify devices that were prone to malfunctioning. Medical professionals were advised to weigh the risks of replacing the device vs. using affected devices. The FDA provided medical professionals with a detailed plan for caring for and monitoring patients with devices that might be at risk for fracturing.
