The Chicago Tribune reports, “Patients at heart of medical device issue: Recipients of life-saving products may not know of potential conflicts of interest when doctors put their own inventions to use.”

The Tribune reports that the case they report on:

“… highlights the tangled web of interests patients face when they require medical devices …showing what can happen in a profitable industry with few controls and plenty of gray areas. It’s especially true when doctors study their own inventions using data from their patients, who don’t always know of the potential conflicts of interest.”
