    In these law suits what about the patients. Medtronic says they paid out 268 million, but it is not the patients who received the money, the ones suffering, the attorneys and insurance companies received the bulk of the money, while patients have suffered the injuries, stress, and wondering when they are going to be thrown around by the defective defibrillator and instead of replacing it or doing something about it before this should happen. They give you 400 dollars and wait for this horrible shock to happen to you, which is inevitable. Doctors were given payouts to place these devices and I know 2 people I do not believe they needed them. Then you go to see a doctor and they do not want to treat you because they do not want to be liable. What happen to humanity. You can spill a hot cup of coffee from McDonalds, which you knew was hot on you and receive millions for a burn which is not life threatening, but these devices are life threatening and you get 400 dollars and all the suffering and trusted in your doctor who was being paid a kickback to put it in you.

    Maybe they should implant the defective Medtronic devices in the big wigs of Medtronic and see how that goes, in their child or their wife or husband, eye for an eye, no amount of money would compensate, but at least you would feel better they paid for what has happened to the patients and familes, instead of the insurance companies and lawyers getting the bulk of the money, and maybe the patients could enjoy a little bit of life they have left.

      I too am DISGUSTED, I was implanted with B.S. ICD in 11-30-11, the first 4 months I had 53 shocks all for the wrong reasons. I had another one last month and had it removed last week It will take a year before I can live without dayly terror.
