Reason For Recall There is issues of warmth or heating at the implant site during charging for the Eon Mini implantable pulse generators (IPGs). In the July 2012 letter St. Jude Medical informed customers that they would be implementing design improvements to the charger to address possible increased energy dissipation when the charger is misaligned with the IPG or the IPG is implanted too near the surface of the skin. This field action is to announce the availability of the newly designed Eon Mini Charger Model 3722 to mitigate excessive heating while charging.
