St. Jude Medical (STJ -5.3%) will stop selling its QuickSite and QuickFlex left-ventricular leads, wires that help pace the heart in patients with heart failure, after 39 reports of the wires protruding from their insulation. STJ has been dealing with the same problem in its recalled Riata wires that connect life-saving defibrillators to the heart.
