Defective Cypher Stent


When an artery or vein is clogged as a result of a blood blockage, blood clot, or plaque, angioplasty can be performed to open the blood vessel. Angioplasty involves inserting a balloon-like device into the vein or artery and filling it with air, allowing blood to flow more freely.

After an angioplasty procedure, an arterial stent is often used to keep the blood vessel open and blood flowing without interference. A stent is a device that prevents the blood vessel from impairing blood flow in the future.

In April 2003, the Cypher stent was released to the public. The Cypher stent is implanted after angioplasty and is coated with a drug called sirolimus. The Cypher stent, and the drug it is coated with, are both designed to correct blockage in the blood stream and prevent future blockages.

Unfortunately, the Cypher stent has caused many people various medical problems after it has been implanted. Not only have many patients developed blood clots following a Cypher stent implant, but other patients have developed serious medical conditions, requiring additional surgery or removal of the Cypher stent altogether.

If you or a loved one has had a Cypher stent implanted after an angioplasty procedure, contact DeMayo Law Offices, L.L.P. ® today to schedule your free initial consultation. If you do have a defective medical device claim, you may be able to recover compensation for losses you have endured as a result of the Cypher stent.
