Los Angeles, California - Guidant Corp., recently acquired by Boston Scientific, faces over a hundred lawsuits involving their defective heart pacemakers and implanted defibrillators. supports consumers affected by Guidant's defective heartbeat aiding devices by offering up-to-date information.

Thousands of U.S. consumers with an implanted Guidant heart device have had the device surgically removed after Guidant announced a recall of more than 100,000 pacemakers and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD). The recall was prompted by FDA involvement and reports of several deaths allegedly linked to device failure.

Guidant recently admitted to making changes to their popular Ventak Prizm 2 implanted defibrillator in 2002. Since these changes were not approved by the FDA, Guidant may have violated a federal law by manufacturing and marketing an unapproved medical device. The federal government is also investigating claims that Guidant was aware of a device malfunction as early as 2002 but did not alert the public until 2005.
