North Carolina Cypher Stents Lawyer

Cypher stents were manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s Cordis unit and introduced into the US market in 2003. They were marketed as a newer generation of stents that were coated with a medication that was intended to prevent the buildup of scar tissue and blood clots. Unfortunately, research has now shown that the coating that was designed to prevent blood clots may actually attract them. Cypher stents were sold by Johnson & Johnson until 2011 at which time they stopped selling the Cypher stents.

Medical Complications with Cypher Stents

Cypher stents have been tied to very serious medical complications including:

  • Blood clots
  • Heart attack
  • Reclogging of the artery
  • Death

Unfortunately these risks continue years after the stent is implanted, so there isn’t a way to prevent these very serious complications. If any of the complications occur, the patient may require further surgery including bypass surgery.

Compensation for Cypher Stent Complications

If you or a loved one has suffered increased blood clots, a heart attack, reclogging of the artery or death after the implantation of a Cypher stent you may be entitled to compensation. Compensation for people who have been injured as a result of the use of Cypher stent in an angioplasty may include money for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Nursing care
  • Time missed from work
  • Pain and suffering

If you or a loved one had a Cypher stent implanted and has suffered any of the side effects mentioned above you need to speak to a knowledgeable and experienced attorney as soon as possible. Medical claims must be filed within a very specific time frame or they may be rejected by the court.

At Auger & Auger our experienced attorneys can help you ensure that your case is filed within the necessary time frame and can help you get the compensation you are entitled to by law. Call us today to learn more about how we can help you.
