Defective Heart Stent

Our attorneys represented the surviving wife and children of a man who died after undergoing heart catheterization using a recently invented stent. The stent caused a massive blood clot, which resulted in a fatal myocardial infarction.

Our medical device team was able to find experts in the field who showed that the manufacturer’s premarket investigation and testing were inadequate and that the instructions given to operating surgeons regarding the use of blood-thinning medications in association with the device were not strong enough to adequately educate prescribing physicians.
