Published: Nov 02, 2012
Cardiovascular device maker Abiomed announced that the US Attorney’s Office was investigating the company’s marketing and labeling of the Impella 2.5 circulatory support device. The announcement confirmed rumors that had been circulating for at least two weeks, though in the press release the company said it had been informed of the investigation on October 26. (I first heard the rumor on October 18.) No details were disclosed about the investigation.
