Man Sues J&J, Subsidiary Over Stent: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance: "Man Sues Johnson & Johnson, Subsidiary Over Drug-Coated Stent
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A man has sued Johnson & Johnson and a subsidiary for allegedly failing to warn him of complications that could be caused by drug-coated stents placed in his arteries.

The allegations come as the Food and Drug Administration cited studies this week showing drug-coated stent recipients face a small but significant blood clot risk. The lattice-shaped tubes prop open clogged arteries. Unlike older, bare-metal stents, newer ones use drugs that dissolve into the bloodstream to prevent tissue re-growth.
Sean O'Shea, 46, alleges Johnson & Johnson was aware of potential complications from the product before it gained FDA approval in 2003, and that the company failed to warn patients and doctors. His lawsuit seeks unspecified damages."
