The FDA wrote a letter to healthcare providers yesterday on the heels of a meta-analysis that suggested an increased mortality rate after two years in people with peripheral artery disease who were treated with paclitaxel-coated and paclitaxel-eluting devices compared to bare devices.
The agency is “evaluating” the new information presented by the study and recommended that healthcare providers continue closely watching patients who have been treated with the drug-eluting devices.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
