Medtronic to pay $  51 million to resolve U.S. medical device probesMedtronic Plc said on Tuesday it would pay $ 50.9 million to resolve U.S. Justice Department probes into how companies it later acquired marketed medical devices, including one meant to treat a vascular defect in the brain. As part of the accord, ev3 Inc, which Medtronic now owns, will pay $ 17.9 million and plead guilty to a charge related to its marketing of a neurovascular medical device for unproven and potentially dangerous uses, federal prosecutors in Boston said. The misdemeanor charge relates to the Onyx Liquid Embolic System, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2005 approved for the limited use of blocking blood flow to arteriovenous malformations in the brain.
