Abstract:

On June 17, 2005, medical device maker Guidant Corporation announced a recall of 50,000 implantable cardioverter defibrillators due to flaws in the devices. These devices are designed to correct a chaotic and deadly type of heart rhythm. This recall was expanded to include 109,000 ICDs and another recall affected Guidants pacemaker products. These problems brought an impending acquisition by Johnson & Johnson into question, and created patient concerns about the integrity and honesty of the company.
