15:31 EDTMDTFDA enters consent decree with Medtronic
The FDA announced the filing of a consent decree against Medtronic and two of the company’s officers—S. Omar Ishrak and Thomas Tefft —for repeatedly failing to correct violations, related to the manufacture of Synchromed II Implantable Infusion Pump Systems, medical devices that deliver medication to treat primary or metastatic cancer, chronic pain and severe spasticity. These violations occurred at the company’s Neuromodulation facilities in Columbia Heights, Minnesota, where the devices are manufactured. The legal action requires the company to stop manufacturing, designing and distributing new Synchromed II Implantable Infusion Pump Systems except in very limited cases, such as when a physician determines that the Synchromed II Implantable Infusion Pump System is medically necessary for a patient’s treatment. The consent decree also requires Medtronic to retain a third-party expert to help develop and submit plans to the FDA to correct violations. The consent decree will remain in effect until the FDA has determined that Medtronic has met all the provisions listed in the consent decree.
