Guidant relaunches stent in Europe:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Guidant has received CE-mark approval for the reintroduction of its Multi-Link Vision coronary stent system, which it voluntarily recalled in March 2003. The product was taken off the market after reports of the stent becoming dislodged from its delivery system (see Clinica No 1052, p 13), but Guidant says it has taken "corrective and preventive actions". The device, which was first introduced on a limited basis in February, uses a cobalt chromium alloy that is suitable for thin stent struts, and Guidant hopes to use it for its future drug-eluting stent programmes.
