New York Times Questions Whether Heart Device Industry Has Embraced Patient Safety Reforms
April 20, 2012
Whether the $10 billion heart device industry has actually embraced promised safety reforms is a question raised this week in a New York Times article highlighting an allegedly flawed heart device component made by St. Jude Medical.
Last month, Dr. Robert Hauser, a cardiologist at the Minneapolis Heart Institute, released a study indicating that short-circuits and other failures of the St. Jude lead might have played a role in some 20 patient deaths. In response, St. Jude executives launched a public relations damage control campaign aimed at discrediting Dr. Hauser.
