Medtronic Settles

Medtronic joins Boston Scientific by agreeing to settle some 2000 lawsuits over its battery recall in 2005 for their Marquis and Insync Marquis ICD product lines (Models 7274, 7230, 7277, 7289, and 7279). This defect involved a short in the battery on Devices manufactured before December 2003 that caused premature battery depletion and occassional overheating of the device.
