In October 2000, Guidant Corporation, a manufacturer of cardiac devices, was accused by company employees of covering up devicerelated problems and deaths associated with its Ancure Endograft System. It was found that Guidant had failed to file 2,628 medical device reports with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) between 1999 and 2001. In June 2003, Guidant pleaded guilty in federal court to violating FDA medical device reporting (MDR) rules and agreed to pay a fine of $92.4 million.
