St. Jude Medical is recalling some of its Eon and Eon Mini pain management implants after receiving 100s of reports that the devices had to be taken out after their batteries failed early or because they overheated during recharging – including 3 cases in which patients received 1st- or 2nd-degree burns. St. Jude Medical (NYSE:STJ) advised doctors and patients last week that it's recalling some of its Eon and Eon Mini pain management implants after hundreds of the neurostimulation devices had to be taken out when their batteries failed too soon or because they overheated while recharging.
