Medtronic Heart Device Draws More Scrutiny for Failure to Test Product

A former Medtronic engineer has drawn the attention of the FDA after he made allegations that Medtronic failed to properly test its new Concerto cardiac device for patients with congestive heart failure. The engineer, Christopher Fuller, worked at Medtronic until late 2005. Fuller has said that Medtronic didn’t properly or adequately test Concerto’s wireless capability which could result in safety issues for the cardiac patients.
