A new report says Medtronic may be linked to as many as 9,300 deaths in the US alone, in addition to an estimated 292,000 injuries .
According to the report, produced by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), one in five medical implants implementing Medtronic products has proven faulty, twice that of other competing companies.
The report, entitled "The Implant Files," which studied data in 36 countries, revealed that authorities in Japan and Norway have also named Medtronic as the single largest source of medical complaints over the past five years.
They concluded that 1 in 5 implants using Medtronic products were problematic. I'm ashamed to read this because I truly thought Medtronic was better than this.
