Did Guidant Corp. Hide Knowledge of Heart Device Defects?

Comments Off

The U.S. Justice Department and the Food and Drug Administration have been conducting an inquiry into and Boston Scientific Corp. and Guidant’s handling of safety issues related to several of its Contak Renewal and Contak Renewal 2 defibrillators. These defibrillators have had electrical flaws and have been recalled.

Newly released records show that Guidant Corp. drafted a letter last year to tell doctors about significant defects in the company’s heart devices but never sent it, a report said on Wednesday.
