Another foolish move by the FDA. They just approved a stent that is no different than the one that was recalled in 2004. In 2004 the FDA wrote about the Cordis stent: "Some physicians use this device for vascular use. This use has not been cleared by the FDA. When used this way, air may be introduced into the patient via the stent system causing serious problems including coma, seizure and stroke. There have been nine patient injuries due to air embolism..."
Now take a look at the risks associated with the "new" Boston Scientific stent.
Deja Vu?
