Tendril leads

I've had a lead replacement after less than 8 years, Tendril 1888 TC. St Jude /Abbott pm. There are a few others named as well, I had the 1888 Tc

i found several studies that conclude they problems early, after 5 years .

ill try and attach them. 
it's a very difficult procedure to have the leads removed and replaced, Abbott is not being helpful or forthcoming on this subject.

Average lead life is 15 years but they can fail at any time for a lot of reasons. If you got more than 5 years out of them, I would be surprised if they were willing to do anything about it, or admit to a problem.
