On October 8, 2003 Guidant announced that it initiated a voluntary recall of certain manufacturing lots of the 3.0 mm diameter MULTI-LINK VISION Coronary Stent System.
Guidant Corp. has recalled some of the devices because they failed to stay in place and failed in quality tests. The recalled Guidant stent is a metal-mesh tube inserted into a coronary artery to prop it open after a blockage has been cleared.
The recall involves stents shipped in the United States and to Europe and Australia. Guidant received U.S. approval for the stents on July 16, 2003 from the Food and Drug Administration.
The recall of the Multi-Link stent comes just a few months after Guidant recalled its Ancure stent and pleaded guilty to 10 felonies and agreed to pay $92.4 million in civil and criminal penalties, to settle the federal charges that it withheld information about 2600 Ancure stent malfunctions. Ancure has been linked to at least 12 deaths and has failed 2400 times.
